Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have launched a GoFundMe to support Ukrainian refugees, the donations of which they plan to match up to $3 million.
The funds will go toward Flexport, which is delivering resources and relief supplies to nonprofits on the ground, and Airbnb, which will support housing and the cost of living for those who are taking in refugees.
The couple shared on the GoFundMe page, “While we are witnessing the bravery of Ukrainians, we are also bearing witness to the unimaginable burden of those who have chosen safety. Countless amounts of people have left everything they know and love behind to seek refuge. With nothing but what they could carry, these Ukrainian refugees are in need of housing and supplies right away.”
“Through GoFundMe.org, 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,” they wrote.
The actress reflected on her Ukrainian heritage in a video shared to the page saying, “I was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, in 1983. I came to America in 1991. I have always considered myself an American, a proud American. I love everything that this country’s done for myself and my family. But today, I have never been more proud to be a Ukrainian.”
”And I’ve never been more proud to be married to a Ukrainian,” Kutcher added.
The couple’s goal is to raise at least $30 million.
