Ukrainian-born actress Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher have surpassed their goal of raising $30 million for Ukrainian refugees, according to People. With donations going to Flexport.org and Airbnb.org, Kunis and Kutcher have helped make a tremendous impact on relief efforts for the Ukrainian people as Russia continues their violent invasion and attacks throughout the country.
In a video shared with followers, Kunis and Kutcher said that though they achieved beyond their goal, their work is still not done. Determined to make the “maximum impact” to help the Ukrainian people, Kutcher added that they will “treat every dollar as if it’s being donated out of [their] pocket with respect and honor for the work that went into earning it, with the intent of love through which it was given, and the desire for it to be maximized for positive outcome for others.”
People reports that the couple announced their fundraising goal of $30 million through GoFundMe on March 3, and kicked it off with donating $3 million themselves. In just 48 hours, they reached their halfway point and have now raised over $34 million. The donations are benefiting Flexport.org, which ships relief supplies to refugees in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and Moldova, as well as Airbnb.org which is providing free temporary housing to Ukrainian refugees.
Kunis expressed her immense gratitude for all of the support going to Ukraine, highlighting the more than 65,000 people who donated through the couple’s campaign. She is urging followers to continue supporting Ukraine either through their campaign or any nonprofit that is bringing humanitarian aid and assistance to Ukrainians as they continue to fight for their lives, their future, and their country.
