Date:11/24/2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, is gearing up to raise dough for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during its fifth annual Thanks and Giving campaign. Domino's customers will have the opportunity to make a donation at point of purchase to benefit the children of St. Jude. Donations can be made when ordering over the phone or when ordering online at www.dominos.com. The campaign begins today and runs through December 31, 2008.

Domino's has raised nearly $4 million since they began participating in the Thanks and Giving campaign in 2005. This year, Domino's goal is to raise $1.5 million during the Thanks and Giving campaign to support the lifesaving research taking place at St. Jude. Domino's is proud to join other retail and corporate sponsors in an effort to ask consumers across the country to "Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not."

"St. Jude delivers breakthrough discoveries that lead to lifesaving cures for children and their families around the world," said David A. Brandon, Domino's Pizza Chairman and CEO. "Now, more than ever, Thanks and Giving dollars are needed for the children of St. Jude and adding a dollar or two to an order can be life changing. I hope that each and every customer will help the kids of St. Jude by adding just a little more to their orders and helping children with cancer and other diseases have the best chance at life."

St. Jude is one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. Every research breakthrough at St. Jude is freely shared with the scientific community worldwide, impacting the lives of children in communities across the country and around the world.

"The children of St. Jude, their Moms and Dads and I are thrilled to welcome back Domino's Pizza to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Thanks and Giving campaign," said Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director for St. Jude. "Domino's is dedicated to this holiday campaign to help ensure that St. Jude can continue the lifesaving research and care that has brought hope to so many families."
