CALL FOR PHOTOS: What makes your neighborhood so great?

On a quest to spread the Karma throughout the city, we need your help

For CL’s 2013 Neighborhood Guide, we’re on a quest to find the good in Atlanta so we can spread the Karma throughout the city - and we need your help. This year we are launching our Do Good campaign, a series of grassroots partnerships with local neighborhoods to help them realize goals and projects they haven’t been able to accomplish on their own, from beautifying a decaying neighborhood corner to starting a community garden to fencing in a new dog park. More about that soon.

As part of this project, we want our faithful CL readers to show us what good looks like in their neighborhoods. Think about it, and send us a photo of what you see. It could be anything from that piece of public art that brightens up your day to a neighbor picking up after their dog, and pretty much anything in-between. Maybe it’s an annual neighborhood festival? An oft-overlooked park? Or a community organization that brings people together? Whatever the reasons, we want to see what makes your neighborhood great.

So join us in bringing good to our fair city - send us photos of the good in your community and we will put your photo in our “do good photo gallery” and possibly publish it our upcoming Neighborhood Guide. Send your snapshots to photos@cln.com or post them to Twitter or Instagram using the #DoGoodATL hashtag before March 11, 2013. Don’t forget to include the location and a brief description.

Now, go forth and rep your n’hood!
