'Have a Heart for Haiti' Fundraiser

I would to invite you to join Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones, World Vision, and me as we host “Have a Heart for Haiti,” a special fundraising evening to benefit “Operation Hope for Haiti” On May 14, 2009.
“Operation Hope for Haiti” was created in response to the devastation left behind in Haiti after the country was hit by several hurricanes in 2008. This fundraiser will benefit a project focusing on stemming the threat of flooding in rural Haiti by employing close to 1,000 local workers to install watershed walls, anti-erosion structures and conduct reforestation. The group hopes to raise $1.5 million over the next three years to help the community of Hinche, Haiti rebuild and recover.
In Miami, we know from experience how difficult it is to recover from the destruction that hurricanes leave behind, and know that help is always needed and deeply appreciated. Our community has given very generously in efforts to alleviate the suffering of our neighbors in Haiti, and the severity of the conditions in the island calls for continued solidarity in our response and commitment to help this devastated country rebuild. We are grateful to our community leaders and partners who have pledged their support for Operation Hope for Haiti, and we ask that you join us in aiding this neighboring nation.
