Millions of Hollywood dollars have been donated to Ukraine in its conflict with Russia and the country is about to get even more!
Leonardo DiCaprio has donated $10 million, according to polishnews.co.uk – and it’s not just because he’s a philanthropist. The 47-year-old star has Ukrainian roots – his grandmother, Helena, was born in Odesa in southern Ukraine, from where she moved to Germany in 1917.
Leo was raised by his grandmother!
Ukraine-born actress Mila Kunis and husband Ashton Kutcher pledged to match up to $3 million in donations, aiming to raise $30 million in total. In an update shared two days ago, Mila and Ashton revealed they were at $15 million, halfway to the goal. The funds raised will be donated to housing Ukrainian refugees, they said.
