Shed the Weight & Share the Warmth benefits One Warm Coat

"The Bachelor" Sean Lowe and his fiancée Catherine Giudici have partnered with Hydroxycut® SX-7™ and GNC Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GNC), the nation's largest specialty retailer of health, wellness and sports nutrition products, to drive awareness and donations for those in need of winter coats.

The Shed the Weight & Share the Warmth campaign encourages people who lose weight to donate their old winter clothing to help those in need.

One Warm Coat receives $10,000

Lowe and Giudici launched the campaign by presenting a $10,000.00 donation on behalf of Hydroxycut SX-7 and GNC to One Warm Coat, a national non-profit organization whose mission is to collect coats and distribute them to people, free of charge. One Warm Coat has collected and donated more than four million coats since 1992.

You can help, too

In January, GNC will extend the program in-store by asking customers to donate $10.00 to One Warm Coat by texting “WARM” to 80100. GNC will also offer a special discount for Hydroxycut SX-7 on national store receipts.

“It has been an honor for Catherine and me to work with Hydroxycut and GNC to launch a program that will help thousands of people stay warm during the cold winter months,” Lowe says. “Charity is an essential part of our lives and this is a truly worthy cause.”

Win-win partnership

One Warm Coat’s National Founder and Board Chair, Sherrie Lewis Wood, was on hand to graciously accept the donation. “We are very grateful to the makers of Hydroxycut SX-7 and GNC stores for their generosity and effort to help those less fortunate this holiday season.”

The program coincides with the launch of Hydroxycut SX-7, the most advanced weight loss and clean sensory experience, designed to help men and women reach their weight loss goals. Hydroxycut SX-7 launched exclusively at GNC stores in December.
