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

    Last year, Margaret Cho took 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 Nov. 17 to begin 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 when she started the campaign last November. "The homeless problem in SF is out of control and this is the least we can do."

    The campaign later became known as #BeRobin, a reference to the kindness of the late Robin Williams.

    48 Hills reports that Cho will host a benefit party Saturday night at SF Eagle that will help raise funds to create a film about the #BeRobin campaign.
