Sex And The City star Kristin Davis was in New York on Wednesday to accept a donation to one of her favorite charities.
Top fashion store Lord and Taylor handed the actress a check for $5,000 during her visit to publicize AHAVA beauty products, of which she is a spokesperson. The donation is to go to the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, an organization that supports the preservation of biodiversity in East Africa.
From the charity’s website : “The mission of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust is to support the preservation of biodiversity within the Maasai tribal lands of East Africa by promoting conservation, education and health services within the Maasai community. The uniqueness of both equatorial Africa’s grassland ecosystems and the storied culture of the Maasai people face a daunting challenge to survive and co-exist in a sustainable manner. Recognizing that the fate of both rests with the Maasai themselves, the MWCT raises awareness and financial support. Funds support a host of programs designed to conserve the legendary wildlife of the area and to encourage sustainable land practices to benefit the ecosystem, ultimately preserving the traditional Maasai way of life.”
