It's my understanding that a Qualified Charitable Distribution must be done by your IRA custodian directly to the qualified charity. If you make a withdrawal from your IRA and then write a check to a charitable organization, I'm not sure that that satisfies as a Qualified Charitable Distribution.

Some IRA administrator's provide a checkbook for the IRA making it possible to write a check directly from an IRA to a charity.
