Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are set to donate $3 million to help Ukrainians amid Russia's invasion.

The couple announced on Instagram they've launched a fundraiser on GoFundMe with the goal of raising $30 million for humanitarian aid over a week after Russia attacked Ukraine, where Kunis was born. They said they'd be matching up to $3 million in donations, an amount the fundraiser has surpassed.

"We're raising funds to support a relief effort that will have immediate impact and supply much needed refugee and humanitarian aid to the area," Kutcher said. "The principal challenge right now is logistics. We need to get housing and we need to get supplies and resources into the area."
