Okay, I did it, I signed up for help_haiti. I'm offering fic.
My thread is here if you fancy bidding.

In case you are unclear at to how it works (I haven't been involved in one of these before either :)), this is the FAQ from the comm:

Help_Haiti Comm FAQ
How do the auctions work?

Standard Auctions:
Go through the posts where people have offered their skills at creating fics, art, vids, podcasts, foods, toys, jewelry, clothing and more - just follow the links from the list here in the sidebar.

When you see an item you're interested in, reply to that comment with the amount you will donate if you are the winning bidder. You can bid up until noon (Eastern Standard Time) on January 20, 2010; new items can be added until 6:00 AM (EST) on January 20, 2010.

If you win, you will be notified on January 20 or 21 by a reply to your comment from (a) one of the help_haiti mods or maintainers, or (b) the Offeror. Once you've been notified that you've won, you can make a donation to one of the listed charities. Donations to any of the charities listed in the post here will be accepted; the list is still growing. Any nation's Red Cross, Red Crescent, UNICEF or OXFAM office/agency is also fine. The winning bidder will donate to the charity directly; please do not send any money to the Offeror or the comm's mods/maintainers.

The confirmation process is still under development, but instructions on how to redact/block out your full name from a confirming receipt will be up by January 19.
