Kristin Davis hits fundraising target

Kristin Davis is celebrating after smashing her charity fundraising goal to help victims of the hunger crisis in West Africa.

The Sex and the City star, a global ambassador for Oxfam, set up a webpage encouraging fans to donate money to help her reach her $10,000 goal earlier this year (12) to provide aid for those suffering in the troubled Sahel region, where locals have battled a drought and a lack of food.

On Wednesday (24Oct12), she learned she had sailed past her target by more than $300 and she has taken to her Twitter.com page to thank everyone who dug deep to donate.

She writes, "I'm so excited to raise 10,000 for @OxfamAmerica for the drought in the Sahel-THANK YOU 2 everyone who supported us!"

Kristin Davis isn't the only star participating in the charity drive - Blood Diamond star Djimon Hounsou had raised just over $9,000 for the same cause as WENN went to press.
