David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

DENVER, COLORADO (Examiner.com) - Kristin Davis is working with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to raise money for a helicopter. The helicopter will have a specific purpose –scaring the bejesus out of poachers! Davis and her foundation team are using CrowdRise to spread the word and raise the funds needed to purchase the helicopter.

Davis writes on her CrowdRise fundraising page, “I have worked with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for many years. They raise orphaned elephants and reintroduce them back into the wild in Kenya. In recent years illegal poaching has reached a crisis level. If poaching continues at the current rate according to experts all wild elephants will be EXTINCT IN 10 YEARS!”

The actress explains that the helicopter will protect the land and the animals from poachers and will be the quickest way for Rangers to stop poachers.

“We can't let the bad guys take the beauty that is nature away from us,” writes Davis.

As an added incentive for donors, the Sex and the City star has put up a pair of Miu Miu shoes (size 37) for a special drawing. The shoes were worn in the movie Sex and the City 2. Anyone who donates at least $26 dollars will be entered into the drawing for the heels.
