Date:11/18/2008

SEATTLE, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the holiday season, shoppers can visit the new Web site http://www.ShopForCancerCures.org to benefit cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (http://www.fhcrc.org) and 10 other world-class cancer centers of the Cancer Research Alliance (CRA) (http://www.cancerresearchalliance.org). A portion of each purchase on the site launched today by Mall Networks (http://www.mallnetworks.com), the leading provider of merchant-funded loyalty shopping solutions, will benefit the cancer-research institutions.

    Highlights of the online shopping mall include:

    -- Discounts and coupons from more than 600 merchants
    -- Free shipping offers
    -- Comparison-shopping involving millions of products

On the site, each merchant posts the percentage of its sales that will benefit cancer research. Through http://www.ShopForCancerCures.org, the Hutchinson Center and CRA intend to empower individual shoppers to drive breakthroughs in science and cancer care.

"This is a win-win situation -- consumers can shop for holiday gifts while, at the same time, help raise money to fund innovative cancer research," said Kit Herrod, director of External Relations at the Hutchinson Center. "We turned to Mall Networks for this exciting project because we're confident that its innovative and robust online loyalty shopping solution will make it simple, convenient and enjoyable for people to make a difference in the fight against cancer."

Ben Kaplan, COO of Mall Networks, said, "We are delighted to support the CRA in its efforts to raise money for these highly regarded cancer centers this holiday season by offering the most innovative and exciting online shopping program for consumers. Driving consumers to actively support the CRA is crucial to the success of the Shop for Cancer Cures campaign, and our online shopping program is an effective way to help reach this goal. With this new online mall, we're proud to help the CRA to simultaneously engage holiday shoppers and accelerate cancer research."
