    Margaret Cho will spend two months busking in San Francisco to raise money for the homeless.

    Margaret Cho has taken to the streets to raise awareness for one of San Francisco's most dire problems: homelessness.

    The comedian, actress, singer and SF native arrived at the corner of Haight and Ashbury streets on Monday to begin what she says will be a daily, two-month commitment to busk on the streets to raise money for the city's homeless population.

    Cho set out a guitar case with a handwritten sign that says, "If you have, give; if you need, take (please remember your fellow man)."

    "We have a small amplification system and big hearts," Cho wrote on her Facebook page over the weekend. "We will make videos and I have some secret amazing legit superstars who will come and sit in with us. The homeless problem in SF is out of control and this is the least we can do."

    Cho will announce her location each day via her Twitter account.
