Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have decided to raise money for aid for Ukraine.

Raised thirty four million dollars from over 67,000 donations.

Their reasons for doing this have deeper ties than just helping a country in need. Kunis is a “proud Ukrainian.” On the pair’s GoFundMe, she explained that she was born in a city in southwestern Ukraine, Chernivtsi, in 1983 and her family traveled to the US eight years later. From there she got her role on That 70’s show, where she met Kutcher on set.


“While this is far from a solution for the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing for so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty.” Kunis says in the video explaining their reasons for doing this.


In the video, the couple explains that donations to the GoFundMe are going directly to two organizations: freight transportation company Flexport, which is organizing shipments of relief supplies to refugee sites in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, and Airbnb, which is providing free, short-term housing to refugees from Ukraine.


“Our work is not done. We will do everything we can to ensure that the outpouring of love that came as a part of this campaign finds maximum impact with those in need.” Kunis says.
