Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher got a thank you from Ukrainian president for raising $35M


Written by:

Actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher raised $35 million to help Ukrainian refugees, and the act was recognized by actor-turned-politician-turned-international hero, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The  Ukrainian president personally thanked the Hollywood couple for their support.

In a tweet, Zelenskyy said he was grateful for their support and “impressed by their determination. They inspire the world.”

The money raised by Kunis and Kutcher is being sent to a group called Flexport, which is organizing and shipping goods for refugees all across eastern Europe. Some of the funds also will go to Airbnb to help provide shelter for refugees.

The couple had initially said they’d match up to $3 million in donations on their GoFundMe.

Kunis was born in Chernivsti, Ukraine, but moved to the United States with her parents when she was a child.
