Ashton Kutcher and wife Mila Kunis share update as they raise millions for Ukraine



  • Couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are raising funds to support the people of Ukraine.
  • Ashton and Mila, who was born in Ukraine, have launched a GoFundMe campaign with a goal to raise $30 million.
  • The couple promised to match donations up to $3 million.

Ashton Kutcher and his wife Mila Kunis are halfway to meeting their $30 million goal for Ukraine. Mila was born in Ukraine in 1983 and emigrated to the United States in 1991. 

On Saturday, the couple posted a video to Kutcher’s Instagram account to give an update on their fundraising efforts.

“UPDATE!! 15 million. We are halfway to our goal. Thank you for the support!” Ashton captioned the video along with the hashtag “Stand with Ukraine.”

The funds have since increased to over $20 million as of this writing.

The posted video drew support from Reese Witherspoon and other celebrities.

“We just wanted to give you a quick update as to where we stand with the fundraising. We’re halfway through,” said Mila.

Mila also introduced Ryan Petersen, the creator of Flexport, and Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb. They were invited to speak further about where the donated funds are being channeled. 


There are more than 30,000 people who have already donated to the cause.

“We’re halfway there. We’re at $15 million, and we’re heading to $30. We’re going to make this happen,” he said. “There are some problems in the world that take a village to solve, and there are other problems that take the rest of the world. This is one of those other problems.”

The couple, who appeared in That ’70s Show, first announced their GoFundMe project on Thursday.

“I’m a proud American. I love everything this country has done for myself and my family,” she said, “but today I have never been more proud to be a Ukrainian.”

On the fundraising page, Mila talked more about her decision to take action.

“Ukrainians are proud and brave people who deserve our help in their time of need. This unjust attack on Ukraine and humanity at large is devastating and the Ukrainian people need our support,” she wrote. “Our family is starting this fund to help provide immediate support and we will be matching up to $3 million dollars. While we are witnessing the bravery of Ukrainians, we are also bearing witness to the unimaginable burden of those who have chosen safety. Countless amounts of people have left everything they know and love behind to seek refuge. With nothing but what they could carry, these Ukrainian refugees are in need of housing and supplies right away.”
