Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher raise $30 million in donations for Ukrainian refugees

By Mia Stevens

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, the actors, have collectively raised more than $30 million for Ukrainian refugees leaving the nation as a result of Russia’s military invasion.

The pair, who came to popularity on the comedy “That ’70s Show,” had previously pledged to match all donations up to $3 million to the charity.
The pair thanked fans for their generosity in a video posted to Kutcher’s Instagram.

“We are going to 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,” added Kutcher. “As funding continues to come in, we are going to treat every dollar as if it is being donated out of our pocket.”

According to the GoFundMe website, more than $34 million has been raised through 69,300 individual donations as of early Sunday.

Kunis is a “proud Ukrainian” herself. She noted on the couple’s GoFundMe that she was born in Chernivtsi, a city in southwestern Ukraine, in 1983 and that her family immigrated to the United States eight years later.
