I was not sure where to post this:

If you are currently figuring your 2009 taxes and find you could use another deduction to help lower your tax obligation, then why not help the victims of the Haiti earthquake and help yourself at the same time.

A new law was enacted after all of the 2009 tax forms had already been printed. This law allows you to take a 2009 tax deduction for a charitable contribution to the victims of the Haiti earthquake, provided you make the contribution by March 1, 2010. So, you have two weeks to help yourself and others as well. We all know how they have suffered.

Here is a link to IRS Publication 17 so that you can check it out for yourselves:
