Margaret Cho busking in the streets of San Francisco to #BeRobin, help the homeless

If you’re walking the streets of San Francisco this month, you’re likely to see an unfair number of homeless people and one busker singing and performing who should look familiar.

Margaret Cho has gone Dancing With the Stars, but now she’s dancing, singing and performing for the homeless. Cho began her very public effort this past week, both along the sidewalks of San Francisco and online via a fund-raiser on GoFundMe — it’s titled #BeRobin: Help the Homeless after the late Robin Williams and his campaigns with Comic Relief during the 1980s and 1990s.

Cho created #BeRobin online via GoFundMe on Nov. 21 and has raised more than $6,100 in the first two days from 103 donors.

From now until the end of the year i will be busking in the streets of san francisco to help the homeless – many hours a day…..

I will tweet ( and Facebook (  where i will be and id love any of you to come down and help me feed and entertain people.

The homeless problem in SF is out of control and this is the least we can do. 

If you can’t join me, there’s another way to help: Throw a few bucks to help feed the needy!

If you have something you’d like to promote on twitter and facebook, you can “Adopt-A-Day,” and your monies will go to feed the homeless on a specific day.

But every little bit helps, and any monies left will be divided between several amazing charities in SF.

If you have, GIVE. If you need, TAKE.

We can all #BeRobin

Here are some more videos and missives from the weekend:

In San Francisco, Cho will have an even bigger formal kickoff to her #BeRobin project this Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving at noon at the Lark Inn at 869 Ellis St.
