‘Figure Queen’ Yuna Kim decided to donate her prize money, from her silver medal at the World Championships,
to the Japanese children who are suffering from the aftermaths of the earthquake. 

 
“Yuna has decided to donate all her prize money she received at Worlds to UNICEF, in order to help the children who were affected by the earthquake in Japan,” 
said Kim’s management, All That Sports on Sunday. 
Kim is a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and has donated  numerous times for different causes, living up to her nickname ‘Charity Angel’. 

The World Championships was the first competition for Kim after her absence for 13 months. 
Kim's decision to compete this season came after much contemplation.
She chose to donate her winnings to the children affected by the earthquake, winnings from a competition that had a deep meaning for her.

According to the organization committee of the competition, 2nd place (ladies/men singles) receives $27,000.

This season’s World Championships were originally scheduled to be held in Tokyo in March.
However, due to the earthquake it was moved and rescheduled to Moscow.
During the completion week, skaters from the Japanese team collected donations for the cause. 
They also wore a mourning badge on their chests.
