Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher Have Raised More Than $20 Million For Ukraine In Just One Week

Celebrity power couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have raised more than $20 million in donations for the people of Ukraine in less than a week.

Kutcher posted a video via his Instagram account sharing the news they were just $10 million shy of their goal.

He said: "Our goal's $30 (million)and we're gonna get there."

The former Two and a Half Men star explained that donations would be going towards Flexport to deliver ‘humanitarian aid’ to non-governmental organisations helping to fund housing for Ukrainians.

Donations would also be directed to Airbnb, which 'is already taking in refugees'.

Kunis added: "But we do want to say thank you to the 56,000 of you who were able to donate and supported us. Whether it was the $5, $10, $1,000, whatever it was, means so much to us because it does bring in a community and a sense of belonging and an ability to help."

Earlier this week, Kunis - who was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, took to her husband’s Instagram informing fans that the 'Stand With Ukraine' campaign was halfway towards its goal of $30 million.

She said: "UPDATE!! 15 million. We are halfway to our goal. Thank you for the support!"

"We just wanted to give you a quick update as to where we stand with the fundraising. We're halfway through. We're super-excited, and we want to say thank you to each and every single one of you. It's been an incredible past 48 hours."

The That 70s Show actor added: "I have always considered myself an American, a proud American. 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."

But now, the couple has raised an additional $5 million, despite only launching their ‘Stand With Ukraine’ GoFundMe page seven days ago.

Kunis and Kutcher have also pledged $3 million of their own money to the fundraiser to further support refugees in Ukraine.

Kunis left Ukraine in 1991 as her parents were seeking a better life for the family.

However, despite being in America for more than 30 years, she is still a ‘​​proud Ukrainian’ and stands in solidarity with them.

On February 26, Kunis also took to Twitter, following Moscow’s invasion of Kyiv and wrote: “God protect the people of Ukraine! My thoughts and prayers are with you.”
