Help Kristin Davis and Leonardo DiCaprio put a stop to elephant slaughter.
Across Africa, elephants are being slaughtered by poachers in record numbers — and their tusks hacked off with chainsaws — to make luxury items, statues and trinkets in Asia. But in days, Thailand will host a key global summit on illegal trade in endangered species, giving us a rare chance to stop this futile massacre.
Thailand is the world’s largest unregulated ivory market and a top driver of the illegal trade.They’ve been in the hot seat for years, yet so far little has been done to clamp down on their role in the elephant attack. But Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has just announced that she is considering a full ivory ban. That’s why we started a global petition on the Avaaz site, to give this campaign the last push it needs to win.
This is the best chance we’ve had in years to have a meaningful victory for Africa’s elephants — we just need to put people power behind it. Join me now to stop the bloody ivory trade. Sign the urgent petition and share it with everyone.

We here at Kristin Davis Central would like to wish Kristin a happy birthday! We sincerely hope you have a wonderful day filled with love, laughter and family!
Help Kristin Davis and Extra host Maria Menounos save the elephants for Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Head over to www.iworry.org for more information and sign their petition to help stop the African ivory trade.
Kristin has urged her fans to shun ivory; insisting ruthless dealers are exploiting a loophole in the law to sell the banned substance as antiques. The Sex and the City star adopted an abandoned baby elephant during a visit to Africa in 2009 and launched a crusade to save the endangered species, for which she was handed the Humane Society’s 2010 Wyler Award.
Now, Davis is stepping up her campaign by highlighting the illegal trade in ivory and calling on the public to beware of tricks used by black market salesmen.
She tells U.K. TV show This Morning, “Number one: Never, ever, ever buy ivory. Because what they are doing is they are saying that it’s antique. They are claiming that it’s antique so you will go to some beautiful shop and they will say, ‘Here’s an antique ivory chest from 1912′, and you think, ‘Ok, how beautiful, I can buy that’. No, no, no – they are faking it.”
“They have taken it and rubbed it to make it look like it’s old. So people are unwillingly supporting this illegal black market sale of illegal ivory. Never buy ivory.”
My daughter isn’t old enough for screen time and I haven’t started letting her play with my iPhone too much. But there’s one exception: when we’re flying. I think that constitutes an emergency, right? She is just captivated by all the other baby’s faces and their expressions in the Baby Play Face App, and it definitely keeps her focused on takeoff. Which is really important, because Gemma is the kind of kid who just wants to wave to every single person on the plane!

Kristin Davis admits she was initially “nervous” about holding her new daughter Gemma Rose in case she “hurt” her. The Sex and the city actress – who announced she had adopted the tot earlier this month – says when she first took responsibility for the little girl she was worried she wasn’t doing everything right.
“I was nervous about whether it would work out. Then when Gemma came to my house she was so tiny and precious that I was nervous I would hurt her. It is an amazing thing to be a responsible for a tiny baby and I just wanted her to have the best care and all the love possible.”
The 46-year-old beauty – who has adopted Gemma as a single parent – is loving every minute of parenthood as she had wanted to be a mother for such a long time.
She added in an interview with Britain’s Hello! magazine: “I have been thinking about adoption for a long time. And it had taken me a while to feel that I could take on parenthood by myself. It is a huge change in my life, but one I am so ready for. I love taking care of Gemma more than I ever could have imagined. She is a very easy baby, she is easily soothed and is sleeping really well. She lets me know when she is uncomfortable and knows how to speak her mind already – in her own baby language, of course.”
Kristin is a new mom!
The Sex and the City star, 46, welcomed daughter Gemma Rose Davis through domestic adoption a few months ago, PEOPLE has confirmed exclusively.
“This is something I have wanted for a very long time,” Davis tells PEOPLE. “Having this wish come true is even more gratifying than I ever had imagined. I feel so blessed.”
Davis, who is a global ambassador for Oxfam and a patron for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, will next be seen in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

Leading actors Scarlett Johansson and Kristin Davis, photographer Rankin, supermodel Helena Christensen and TV presenter Zoe Ball are among the stars joining Oxfam in putting out a call to fix the broken global food system, which is failing to feed nearly a billion people each day.
The international food system – which takes food from the fields to our plates – is currently leaving one in seven people going hungry every day and, according to Oxfam, the situation is getting much worse. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Angélique Kidjo and international actor Gael Garcia Bernal are also among the names joining Oxfam calling for governments and big businesses to act now and fix it, to avoid the first ever global food crisis.
Grow will be Oxfam’s biggest ever campaign and aims to end world hunger. It will be launched in 45 countries from today, and aims to gather millions of supporters.
Sex and the City actor Kristin Davis has just returned from Haiti with Oxfam where she visited women’s farming projects.
“In my travels with Oxfam I have met many women all over the world farming to feed their families, working their own land sunrise to sunset but struggling to do so,” she said. “Here in Haiti, I met with a co-op where farmers are growing mangoes. With Oxfam’s help they are beginning to see success and expand their business. Food security is vital so that a country can supply food to its own people – this was especially evident after the earthquake where Haiti had to rely on huge amounts of food aid.”

Kristin Davis has had a lifelong “fascination” with elephants. The Sex and the City actress — who is an ambassador for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust — says she has loved the huge creatures ever since she was a child and would often watch wildlife documentaries about the mammals.
She said: “I’ve had a fascination with elephants ever since I was little, growing up as an only child in South Carolina with my mum and stepdad. I was always watching National Geographic nature programmes and sat on a giant stuffed elephant.”
The 46-year-old star has always been drawn to the animals because of their ability to form emotional bonds with one another.
She explained: “What captivated me was that elephants are so large yet so gentle. It’s intriguing how complex and emotional their communication is within their family unit.”
Kristin had to wait until her career took off to be able to afford to see elephants in the flesh and says the experience of finally seeing them in their natural habitat in 2009 was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
She said: “While other people in the Campi ya Kanzi lodge in the Chyulu Hills wanted to see lions and leopards, I was up at 5am and watching elephants all day with my guide Elvis. I was completely mesmerised.”

Kristin Davis was touched to receive a handwritten card from Dame Elizabeth Taylor. The legendary actress – who died last month at the age of 79 – wrote to all the main cast members of Sex and the City after the TV series named a dog after her in the sixth and final season in 2004.
Kristin – whose character Charlotte York Goldenblatt was the owner of the pooch – told TV show ‘Live! with Regis and Kelly’:
“The wonderful thing about our show. was we had such wonderful support from the entertainment industry and our writer Michael Patrick King. had gone to Elizabeth Taylor and asked her about the whole storyline, because remember it was the dog and Charlotte had a miscarriage and she’s watching the life story of Elizabeth and that kind of gives her the gumption to get back up and face life and go on with her life.
“Elizabeth had been so sweet and she said, ‘Of course,’ and she sent us all gifts, and she sent us a handwritten card. And I just remember holding that card and thinking, ‘Elizabeth Taylor wrote this to me!’ It was just so generous and warm and wonderful and how you dream that all of those people are gonna be.”
Kristin says Elizabeth’s kindness surpassed all their expectations. She said: “When things like that happen – people that you’ve grown up watching – and they’re so generous and kind of better than you would expect them to be, it’s a wonderful thing.”
