Those who stop by San Francisco over the next two months will want to keep their eyes open for one of Margaret Cho's street performances. The comedian/singer-songwriter is performing a series of impromptu shows around the city in order to raise money and awareness for homelessness. The performances are meant to be low-key, with Cho opening her guitar case for donations.

There isn't a set list of stops, with Cho opting to announce where and when she'll perform via social media. While the Margaret Cho's street performances aren't likely to raise a ton of cash they will attract plenty of attention from blogs and social media. Many celebrities do charitable work, but few do it in as casual a way as this. You can see photos from the first performance at Haight-Ashbury here.
