“What’s happening in Ukraine is heartbreaking” Ellen DeGeneres donated $30,000 to support Ukraine
As one of Ellen DeGeneres’s last gestures during her talk show reign, she helped Mila Kunis’s campaign to alleviate the suffering of the Ukrainian people with a $30,000 gift.
Ellen brought up how Mila and Ashton Kutcher have spearheaded the celebrity efforts to raise funds for those affected by Russia’s invasion. To help with some of the suffering going through the country, Ellen and Tisbest.org gave Mila $30,000 to help with the efforts.
As of the end of May 2022, Ashton and Mila’s GoFundMe had raised $36.6 million with Mila and Ashton donating $3 million of their own money. When the campaign had reached the $30 million goal in March 2022, the couple released a video thanking all those who donated. “We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the support, and while this is far from a salve of the problem, our collective effort will provide a softer landing for so many people as they forge ahead into their future of uncertainty,” said Mila.
