For Japan


The American skier Julia Mancuso teamed up with two Japanese skiers to raise money for the earthquake victims in Japan.  The three of them are asking skiers at the World Cup Finals this week to donate some or all of their winnings to the relief work in Japan.  The winnings from such an event can be tens of thousands of dollars.  Neither Japanese skier is competing as the Finals are only open to the top 25, but Julia could win some medals and some money in more than one event.  She is a very well connected and successful skier so her name lends a lot to this request.  I think it is great that she has come forward and made such a generous commitment.

It's wonderful to see the human spirit shine in the face of such a tragedy. Julia Mancuso is proof that there is good in the world, and reading this lifted my heart.

Thank you. ♥
