Kids Life Magazine, Tuscaloosa, AlabamaIn addition to my Reel Life With Jane blog, the site is home to my syndicated family movie and TV reviews, currently published in a variety of  print and online publications.

Many of the publications in the Reel Life With Jane family (because, yeah, I like to think of us as a family) are regional parenting publications, a great network of which can be found at Parenting Publications of America.

Kids Life Magazine, based in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, has been with me for a long time, and I’ve loved having them in the family. Created and run by Mary Jane Turner, the publication is not only a great magazine that showcases everything Tuscaloosa has to offer kids and families, it’s also a wonderful example of how a community can work together, both in good times and bad.

Tuscaloosa was one of the hardest-hit areas when a tornado ripped through the south recently, and Kids Life Magazine jumped into action to help with networking and support. Their Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as the Kids Life blog, are filled with storm-related info, including places in need of clothing, food and other items; drop-off centers; phone numbers; volunteer opportunities; and up-to-the-minute info for victims and volunteers.

It really shows how a community can work together to help heal and recover from a disaster. Many thanks to Mary Jane Turner and Kids Life Magazine for their dedication and community support.
