Though they're preparing for the biggest race of their careers, Olympic alpine skiers still took the time to help out Haiti. Julia Mancuso, who won gold in Torino and is competing for the U.S. in Vancouver, put together an auction of skiers' autographed racing bibs. Her efforts brought in $90,000 for the American Red Cross.

The most popular bib was from Swiss skiing legened Didier Cuche, who recently broke his thumb and is doubtful to ski in the Olympics. A bidder paid $16,209 for the bib Cuche wore when winning the prestigious Hahnenhamm. To the shock of no one, Lindsey Vonn was the most popular American skier, with her signed bib from the women's World Cup race in Cortina d'Ampezzo bringing in just over $4,000. Bode Miller and Ted Ligety's bibs brought brought in more than $1,000.
