Date:11/19/2007

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- GNC is joining St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as it kicks off its annual Thanks and Giving campaign. This is the fourth year for the national campaign and the second year that GNC has joined as a partner in the effort.

Thanks and Giving was created by award-winning actress and St. Jude National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas and her siblings, Terre and Tony Thomas, the children of hospital founder Danny Thomas. The campaign encourages customers to "Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not." GNC shoppers will see the St. Jude Thanks and Giving magnifying glass on a bright green background in their stores and can support the campaign by simply adding a donation to their purchases. Donations can also be made online at http://www.GNC.com, http://www.stjude.org or by calling 1-800-4STJUDE. Thanks and Giving begins nationwide on November 19 and continues through the holiday season. GNC got a head start -- stores began raising funds for the Thanks and Giving campaign on November 1.

"Thanks and Giving is privileged to partner with some of the country's most respected brands and companies and we're thrilled that GNC is involved again this year," said Marlo Thomas. "We know GNC's customers welcome the opportunity to help St. Jude continue its work in the fight against childhood cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases."

Thanks and Giving is an unprecedented coming-together of retail and corporate partners, media and celebrities asking everyone to join them in supporting St. Jude's groundbreaking research that benefits children in communities everywhere.
