Help me change someone's life.

Dear family and friends,

As many of you know, I serve on the board of United Way of Miami-Dade, a cause I care deeply about. I have created my fundraising page to help raise money for United Way of Miami-Dade and help change someone's life.

United Way is so important to our community. Did you know it funds more than 130 programs right here in Miami-Dade? These programs help change the lives of countless individuals thanks to our support.

I invite you to join me in changing the life of someone in need of our help. Make a gift and be as generous as you can. If you already contribute to United Way, thank you for your support and consider giving more. Whatever you give, big or small, will make a difference.

I am doing this because it's something that I know will help change someone else's life for the better. I hope you will help and be a champion, too.

You can make your contribution online by visiting the link to my page below. Thank you so much for being a part of this.

Dragado del Puerto de Miami

William Alexander, presidente de CAMACOL

Miami es una ciudad multicultural, multilingüe y multiétnica, donde la población latina supera numéricamente a la anglosajona y su mayor parte nació en otros países. Es una ciudad que favorece a los Estados Unidos y también a los demás países de América ya que tiene más vuelos y mayor transporte marítimo con todos los países latinoamericanos que cualquier otra ciudad, más consulados, más instituciones financieras, más empresas transnacionales, más centros de salud y de estudios, más facilidades turísticas, artísticas y deportivas. Miami es, como bien lo expresara Jorge Arrizurieta, "la ciudad latinoamericana más cercana de los Estados Unidos". Miami es una Ciudad Mágica.

El Puerto de Miami es el #1 en el mundo en cuanto a cruceros. Miami es el primer puerto de contenedores procedentes del canal de Panamá hacia el norte. También es el más grande puerto de contenedores de los 14 puertos de aguas profundas de la Florida. El Puerto de Miami constituye el primer motor de la economía de Miami y soporta más de 175,000 puestos de trabajo en el sur de la Florida. Ya se comenzaron las obras del túnel ($1 billón aprox.) que enlazarán el Puerto de Miami con el sistema inter-estadal de transporte que ampliará el acceso y movimiento de camiones de cargas, aligerando a su vez la congestión de tráfico en las áreas de acceso al down town de la ciudad y a Miami Beach.




(Miami-Dade) July 13, 2010 - Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez asked community leaders today to send a message to Washington about one of South Florida's most critical infrastructure improvement projects, the Port of Miami Deep Dredge project, which would deepen Miami Harbor to - 50 feet to accommodate the world's largest cargo container vessels.

The Mayor has joined forces with City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and other local elected and business leaders in seeking $75 million in federal funding to move the project forward. Along with the port tunnel, now under construction, the Deep Dredge is a major infrastructure improvement that will enable the port to double its cargo capacity over the next decade.
