Raising Money for International Causes

It is my understanding that donations to organizations for helping people abroad (Haiti earthquakes, schools in Kenya, Tsunamis in Japan, etc) are not tax deductable.

Therefore, if I have a project for going abroad to provide some sort of help, should I create it under a for profit entity to make things simple?

If I solicit for contributions over the internet or by mail in multiple states, am I just considered to be conducting for profit business? No need to register in each state like I would for a 501c3?
