After skiing alongside Japanese skiers for many years, Julia Mancuso knew she had to help when she saw images of the devastation in Japan. The Olympic gold medalist founded Skiers Helping Japan, an organization of both recreational skiers and athletes dedicated to sending funds and good will to Japan. Mancuso personally donated half of her winnings from her FIS World Cup finals downhill victory.
