“Our goal is $30 million, and we’ll get there,” commented Kutcher, thanking the 56,000 people who wanted to support the collection started by the two stars. “Whether it was $5, $10, or $1,000, it means a lot to us.” “We keep pushing. Let’s keep spreading the word and we will reach our goal together”, he resumed. «The first humanitarian aid is already on the field. Flexport has already dispatched planes that are delivering humanitarian aid to NGOs and Air BnBs that are taking in refugees. There are over a million children in refugee status right now – anything we can do is of great help to them.”
Mila Kunis, his wife, was born in Ukraine and moved to the United States in 1991 when she was eight years old. Kutcher and Kunis launched the GoFundMe page last Thursday, sharing a video shot by the actress and posted on her Instagram account. “I was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, in 1983. I came to America in 1991. I have always considered myself an American,” began Mila Kunis. “I love everything this country has done for me and my family. But, today, I have never been so proud to be Ukrainian». Kunis later said: “The events that have taken place in Ukraine are devastating. There is no place in this world for this kind of unjust attack on humanity.”
