Pay what you want for Margaret Cho’s album and be a good person while you’re at it

Although her most recent album Cho Dependent was released nearly a year ago, Margaret Cho has been doing a fine job of keeping our attention on it. The all-musical comedy album featuring the likes of Ani DiFranco, Fiona Apple and Tegan and Sara not only plays well on its own, Cho has gifted the world with a steady stream of accompanying videos to support the album.

And she’s planning on making yet another– this time, for the song “Asian Adjacent.” Here’s where you come in. Through the website Groupees, Cho has established a donation page, wherein you can pay whatever you want ($1 minimum) for Cho Dependent. Whoever spends the most on the album (which includes two bonus tracks) will get a part as an extra in the video!

And 20 percent of the money spent on the record will go to imMEDIAte Justice, which, according to their official site, “empowers young women and queer people of color with the knowledge and skill-sets to generate new images of reproductive freedom that inspire community action and global dialogue.”

So, if you were planning on getting the album anyway, now is a good time to do so. If you already have the album, you can snag two extra tracks for $1 at the very least. Or if you just want to feel like a good person for a few minutes, you can give a few bucks to a worthy cause.
