Date:10/22/2007

- Proceeds from the sale of each extraordinary gift to benefit St. Jude

Children's Research Hospital -

NEW YORK, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Saks Fifth Avenue announced that it has created five exclusive, over-the-top luxury gifts available for purchase beginning October 22. A portion of each gift sold will be donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Each extravagant gift was inspired by the kids of St. Jude. Saks Associates visited the hospital last summer carrying crayons, magazine clippings, paper and paste, and asked the children to create drawings and collages that reflect their hopes and dreams. Each of the five gifts embodies the come-to-life fantasy gift, vacation or future career of a St. Jude child as depicted in their artwork.

A detailed description of each gift is presented in Saks' first holiday catalog, Snow or Never, which will arrive in homes this month.

About Thanks and Giving(R) and St. Jude:

This unique national campaign raises funds and awareness for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help save children's lives in communities everywhere. St. Jude was founded by entertainer Danny Thomas and is the world's epicenter of childhood catastrophic disease treatment and research.
