FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RadioShack Corporation (NYSE: RSH) announced today that it is partnering with St. Jude during the 2008 holiday shopping season for the 5th anniversary of the Thanks and Giving campaign. In its first year of participation in the Thanks and Giving campaign, RadioShack is asking customers to "Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not."

The RadioShack Thanks and Giving campaign runs from Nov. 21 to Dec. 31, 2008. Customers who shop at any of the approximately 4,400 neighborhood RadioShack stores and participating dealers during this time will have the opportunity to make a cash or credit card donation to benefit St. Jude while paying for their merchandise. RadioShack joins some of the nation's leading brands and most respected companies and their customers as they help St. Jude to fulfill its mission of finding cures and saving the lives of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

"We are thrilled to welcome thousands of RadioShack stores across the country to the St. Jude Thanks and Giving family this holiday season," said Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director for St. Jude. "RadioShack's dedication to the campaign will enable us to carry on our work that impacts the lives of children in communities across the country."

"We are proud to help raise funds for St. Jude in support of its mission to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases," said Julian Day, chairman and chief executive officer of RadioShack Corporation. "St. Jude has a unique approach to helping children across all socio-economic levels, regardless of the family's ability to pay for the treatment. This would not be possible without the generous support of many people."
