Just a reminder that there is 2009 tax benefit (if you itemize) to making a contribution to an approved charity working in Haiti, by March 1, 2010. Because we have been in transition and had banking issues, I didn’t get my 2009 charitable contributions in on time to get a receipt for tax purposes. So this is very beneficial on several levels. Note, the charity has to be on the approved list.
