How We Reach Them

We reach more than 25,000 engaged readers each quarter, with more than 10,000 copies of each issue printed. More than 1,000 are mailed directly to River Region physicians offices.

Another 4,000 are mailed to the homes of the Joy to Life Foundation’s loyal supporters.

Thanks to our exclusive distribution agreement with CVS Pharmacy, single copies are available for pick up in central and south Alabama CVS stores.

Single issues are also prominently placed in our area’s most popular (and frequented) restaurants and stores (see below for the list).

Plus, we have hundreds of each issue distributed through Baptist Health System locations in the tri-county area.

On our website, in addition to posting a full digital version of each issue, we add fresh, online-exclusive content each month, including an updated events calendar, Go&Do, as well as bonus content related to the magazine on JTLXtra and WatchVIDEOS pages.

We also send a twice-monthly email newsletter highlight some of our favorite upcoming events to more than 6,000 inboxes, as well as monthly e-blasts to Joy to Life’s database of donors, supporters, sponsors and more.
