    It could actually be a good ruling for charities that are not animal related. If you get a valid letter from the charity acknowledging your contribution you could be safe in deducting expenses.

    This could easily become an abused area of tax deductions and charities are going to have to make sure they have some procedures in place before issuing letters. If a charity is blanket issuing a letter, they could put themselves and others counting on that letter in some hot water.

    Good for her. Volunteers like this do such important work, and often incur a lot of unreimbursed expenses.
