Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher have started a GoFundMe to help Ukrainian migrants, and they aim to match up to three million USD in donations.
The money will go to two organizations: Flexport, which provides resources and humanitarian materials to charities on the ground, and Airbnb, which will help with housing and living costs for individuals who are taking in refugees. The couple’s objective is to raise at least $30 million (as of this writing, the GoFundMe has raised over $3 million from over 10,000 donors). According to United Nations figures, more than half of Ukraine’s refugees have gone to Poland, while others have fled to neighboring countries such as Hungary, Moldova, Romania, and Slovakia.
Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher Are Proud Ukrainians
“While we are witnessing Ukrainians’ fortitude, we are also witnessing the awful suffering of those who have chosen safety,” Kutcher, 44, captioned an Instagram video.
The couple shared the news in a video on GoFundMe’s YouTube account, with Kunis reminiscing on her Ukrainian roots.
In another interview, Mila Kunis described Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions on Ukraine as “devastating.” “This type of unjust aggression on humanity has no place in this world,” she continued.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, who co-starred on That ’70s Show’ and married in 2015, have set a goal of raising $30 million for refugee relief and other humanitarian initiatives for displaced Ukrainians through their GoFundMe page.
The $3 million investment will go to Airbnb and Flexports, two organizations that provide refuge to those seeking safety in nations like Romania, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Moldova.
In a 2017 interview with Net-a-Porter.com, Kunis, who has two children with Kutcher, Wyatt, 7, and Dimitri, 5, discussed returning to Ukraine as an adult.
