Comedian. Actor. Musician. Advocate. Entrepreneur. Five-time Grammy and Emmy nominee. When hasn’t Margaret Cho’s strong voice been part of our consciousness? It feels like she has always been here, like a friend you can always count on, lighting the path for other women, other members of underrepresented groups, other performers, to follow. Margaret staunchly supports anti-racism, anti-bullying, gay rights, all while fulfilling her successful creative side with a legendary stand-up career that has yielded 10-plus comedy tours.
Monthly updates feature luminaries such as fundraiser George Valencia and Fenty CEO Hilary Super among others, sharing their experience and achievement through conversation and photos. At year’s end, all 12 of the profiles will be bound and published as a limited-edition volume, with proceeds distributed equally among the Soldiers’ favorite charities.
In addition to the tribute of words and images, each honoree receives a $1000 donation to the charity of his, her or their choice from NEFT Vodka.
