I don't get this... you are donating to charity, so why do you even WANT a tax deduction? You'll help those less fortunate but only if you can get something out of it?

Because you can, in that case why make any deductions on your taxes? I donate because I want to, and if the government is going to give me a tax break on it, I'll take it. I would donate either way, but getting a few extra bucks back is always a bonus.
And I have to say I don't think claiming it on your taxes makes your donation any less charitable.

We would donate without the deduction but every deduction we get is nice. Even with the deduction we always owe a substantial amount of money so we are not getting out of paying our taxes we pay our fair share and then some.
