In a new video, celebrity couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis shared that their work is not yet done after reaching their target of $30 million donations to help Ukraine following Russia’s invasion.
The couple took to Instagram on March 17 to inform fans and donors that they’ve reached their goal. Mila shared, “Over 65,000 of you donated. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the support.”
She continued, “While this is far from a solve of the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing for so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty.”
Ashton also explained that even though they’ve reached their goal, they’ll still continue to raise funds and ensure that their donations reach those who need them.
He said, “We’re gonna do everything we can to ensure that the outpouring of love that came from you all as a part of this campaign finds the maximum impact with those in need.”
According to the actor, the funds have been sent to Flexport.org and Airbnb.org and will continue to be sent there. He explained on March 3 through an Instagram post, “While we are witnessing the bravery of Ukrainians, we are also bearing witness to the unimaginable burden of those who have chosen safety. Through GoFundMe, this fundraiser will provide an immediate impact on refugee and humanitarian aid efforts. The fund will benefit Flexport.org and Airbnb.org , two organizations who are actively on the ground providing immediate help to those who need it most. Flexport.org is organizing shipments of relief supplies to refugee sites in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova. Airbnb.org is providing free, short-term housing to refugees fleeing Ukraine. Standing with Ukraine means supporting Ukrainians.” He added the hashtag, #StandWithUkraine.
Mila shared earlier this month that she was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine in 1983. She moved to the United States in 1991. She shared on the video with Kutcher, “I’ve always considered myself American—a proud American. I love everything this country has done for myself and my family. But today I have never been more proud to be Ukrainian.”
Kutcher piped in, “I’ve never been more proud to be married to a Ukrainian.”
The celebrity couple is among the first to show their support for Ukraine.
