What would you do for a MoBoulevard tee? Donate your first born to a needy Hollywood celebrity? Email your bank account info to the prince of Zamunda? (Cue Eddie Murphy laugh.) Luckily, all you have to do next Saturday, May 18, is show up for three hours of community clean-up in Old Fourth Ward.

Last year's inaugural Year of Boulevard campaign - shepherded by Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall to bring more community resources and comprehensive cleanup to the Boulevard corridor - didn't end with 2012. Hence, more Year of Boulevard. Or, MoBoulevard for short.

And next week's spring community cleanup project is looking for volunteers to pitch in and around Old Fourth Ward, but specifically at the future site of Marie Cowser Memorial Park, located on the corner of Auburn Avenue and Randolph Street. Of course, the park revitalization and dedication is one of three initial Creative Loafing Do Good projects recently funded via a successful IndieGoGo campaign which raised $2,550 and matching funds from the Home Depot Foundation.

But back to the tees. All one will cost you is three hours of your life next Saturday (9 a.m.-noon). If not for the T-shirt, do it for Old Fourth Ward and the memory of Marie Cowser. But seriously, we're talking instant vintage Atlanta streetwear as soon as these joints hit the street. Not to mention, it's guaranteed to age better than that Freaknik T-shirt you thought was the lick back in '96. And Lord only knows what you did to get that.

UPDATE: The Year of Boulevard Community Spring Cleanup, scheduled for 9 a.m.-12 noon today (Sat., May 18) at the site of the future Marie Cowser Memorial Park has been canceled due to weather. It will be rescheduled for a future date. We'll keep you posted.
