Mila Kunis is pairing with her husband Ashton Kutcher to raise $30 million in relief funds for her native country Ukraine as Russia attempts to invade.
“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,” they captioned a video where they said they would match up to $3 million in donations to relief funds as they encouraged their fans to pitch in.
The stars revealed that the funds would be going “two organizations who are actively on the ground providing immediate help to those who need it most.” One is Flexport which has been “organizing shipments of relief supplies to refugee sites” while the second, Airbnb, has been “providing free, short-term housing to refugees fleeing Ukraine.”
In the video, Mila explained her roots. “I was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, in 1983. I came to America in 1991 and I have always considered myself an American. A proud American,” she explained. “I love everything that this country has done for myself and my family. But today, I have never been more proud to be a Ukrainian.”
