In some cases, it may be impossible to get the donee's signature on Form 8283. The deduction will not be disallowed for that reason if you attach a detailed explanation of why it was impossible. The receipt will be used as it states that you did indeed make the donation.

I hope this is useful.

Please let me know if you need more information.
