Teter, the 2006 halfpipe gold medallist, said she was donating all her contest money this season to help the recovery effort in Haiti.

After the last Olympics, Teter started a charitable mission through her website to help an impoverished town in Kenya acquire basic necessities like clean water.

Since the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Teter has focused some of her efforts on contributing to the recovery effort there.

"I have underwear coming out for charity. So all the ladies in here can get some sweet cheeks underwear soon," Teter said.

The website says $5 from each pair of underwear sold will go to Doctors Without Borders for their efforts in Haiti, with a goal of raising $100,0000 by May.
