    A weekly stand-up comedy show in San Francisco's Tenderloin  District will benefit an aid organization in Haiti for the next two weeks,  according to event organizers.
    At the next two shows of "Funny Mondays at the Deco Lounge," the  Rainbow World Fund will raise money for its disaster relief partner in Haiti,  CARE.

    The Rainbow World Fund is an agency that works with the LGBT  community to educate people about world need and raise money for various  international organizations.

    Attendees at "Funny Mondays" this week and next week will be asked  to donate up to $20 at the door, with all proceeds going to CARE.

    CARE has already begun distributing food, water and shelter in  Haiti, according to the organization.

    "Funny Mondays" begins at 8 p.m. at the Deco Lounge, located at  510 Larkin St. in San Francisco.
