We’ve likely all done something to show our support for Ukraine in their tragic fight with Russia. But Ukrainian-born Mila Kunis and husband Ashton Kutcher went above and beyond to aid the refugees fleeing their homes.
Zelensky Tweeted words of praise for the pair, writing that they were ‘among the first to respond to our grief.’ He went on to say, ‘They have already raised $35 million & are sending it to @flexport & @Airbnb to help [Ukrainian flag] refugees.’
‘They help IDPs [internally displaced refugees] by raising funds. And the two of them have already raised [close to] $35 million,’ he said.
‘I thanked them on behalf of our people, on behalf of all of us. This is a good result for one couple of our friends in America,’ Zelensky said.
On Thursday, the couple revealed they hit their $30million fundraising goal to benefit Ukrainian refugees just two weeks into launching the program as they shared an update to Instagram.
‘We just want to say that we hit our goal,’ Mila said in the clip before Ashton added: ‘Over $30million dollars raised.
Mila added: ‘Over 65,000 of you donated. We are overwhelmed with gratitude of the support and while this is far from the solve of the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing to so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty.’
Ashton also said, ‘Our work is not done. We’re 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 a maximum impact with those in need.’
It’s really a stunning show of support.
