Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy is ‘impressed’ with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s efforts to help his war-torn country and how they’ve raised $35 million for relief. He said they were the ‘first’ to respond to Ukraine’s ‘grief.’
“@aplusk & Mila Kunis were among the first to respond to our grief’, wrote Zelenskyy in Twitter. “They have already raised $35 million & are sending it to @flexport & @Airbnb to help [Ukrainian] refugees. Grateful for their support. Impressed by their determination. They inspire the world. #StandWithUkraine,” President Zelenskyy tweeted on March 20.
The Ukrainian president also shared a photo of his Zoom call with the actors.
“We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the support, and while this is far from a salve of the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing for so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty,” Mila said in a video released on March 17.
“Our work is not done. 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. As funding continues to come in, we’re going to treat every dollar as if it’s being donated out of our pocket: with respect and honor for the work that went into earning it, with the intent of love for which it was given, and the desire for it to be maximized for positive outcome for others”, said Ashton.
