There's an online effort underway to help an 88-year-old San Francisco icon who performs as a one-woman band.

Jackie Jones has been a regular fixture for over 15 years at the Alemany Farmer's Market. She makes her living playing jazz tunes from the 1920s with a washboard guitar and a wooden tap dancing cat.

But an injury has kept her from earning any money for the past year.

Now, some of her neighbors have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help her get back to work.
