We asked @nbcnightlynews followers on Twitter whether they watched last night's star-studded telethon to raise money for Haiti, broadcast by NBC and several other television networks, and whether they were moved to contribute. Here are some of the responses we received:
@landongodfrey: yes, watched & was moved to contribute, even though have given to three aid agencies since the earthquake.

@cherie_lily: Yes, I watched & tweeted about #HopeForHaiti last nite... Our school will be taking up donations & sending them as well. Local @ConvoyofHope is there.

@ClairWyant: No, but I wish I did, love music... especially if it is live!
