Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are helping support Ukrainians.
The couple has launched a GoFundMe to support those on the ground.
Their goal is to raise $30 million and Kutcher and Kunis will match donations up to $3 million. The money raised will go to benefiting Airbnb.org — which helps find homes for people in crisis– and Flexport.org— which helps deliver global aid.

“Today, I am a proud Ukrainian. While my family came to the United States in 1991, I was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine in 1983. 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,” Kunis said in a statement.
“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.”
Kunis was born and raised in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. Kunis moved to the United States at seven years old with her family.
A few days after launching the fund, the couple gave an update.
“UPDATE!! 15 million. We are halfway to our goal. Thank you for the support!” they captioned an Instagram video.
“We just wanted to give you a quick update as to where we stand with the fundraising. We’re halfway through,” Kunis said in the clip. “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.”
“Over 30,000 people have donated to this cause. We’re halfway there. We’re at $15 million, and we’re heading to $30. We’re going to make this happen,” Kutcher added. “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.”
