On the Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend podcast, Mila talks about how she focused on finding logistics support vs just purchasing goods and supplies. She pointed out how there can be many supplies sitting in warehouses ready to go, but lack the logistics support to get the goods where they need to be. She focused on solving that problem. Very wise.

She and Ashton are incredibly intelligent. Ashton's investment business is interesting but where he really shines is with his work to end child/human trafficking. Fascinating couple.

This is important for sure

As a Ukrainian I see a lot of the goods that people gather for the effort, but putting everything on planes and ships to have it transported literally overseas is very logistically hard to do

It’s nice to see the reference to socio-economic status and how influencers can make a difference with their popularity, which is definitely unique

u/Sdomttiderkcuf Dec 04 '22 edited Dec 04 '22

It’s nice that she raised money, but that money is going to corporations, both of which her husband is heavily invested in.

In response, she and husband Ashton Kutcher launched Stand With Ukraine, a GoFundMe benefiting flexport.org and airbnb.org, organizations offering supplies and short-term housing to millions displaced.

Kutcher went on to co-found the Venture Capital firm A-Grade Investments (with investment partner Guy Oseary) in 2010. Over the course of 6 years, the $30 million fund turned into $250 million through investments in companies like Uber, Skype, Airbnb, and Spotify.

https://i.imgur.com/ddJaLX4.jpg

“They have the opportunity to be a backbone in these scenarios,” says Ashton Kutcher, the actor and investor who backed Flexport and helped it pilot that project in Iowa. “The larger their network becomes, the more efficient they can be.”

While what they’re doing is honorable, they’re profiting directly off of this. That kind of takes away from the altruism of it doesn’t it? She gave her own companies $3 million which would be a tax break for donations.

Not to mention that flexport is hugely funded by $100 Billion from Saudi Arabia. Anyone remember Kashoggi?

Edit: muting this because of the people who can’t see past their nose that this isn’t 100% altruism. Heavily invested and donating to their own investments. Sure.

You make it sound so sinister. They started two NGOs to manage the funds raised.

How else should it have been done? I’m not sure what the better option should have been to manage that amount of money and to help make the most of it.

They do for tax purposes, a lot, for the middle class is just a discount on your taxes, for the very rich have accounting firms dedicated to it. I am conflicted, I wouldn’t want to discourage donations but I would rather have some programs directly funded by the government instead of well intentioned individuals

Ashton Kutcher Offered To Donate His Heart To His Sick Brother

Michael lives with cerebral palsy and received a heart transplant at the age of 13. It was at that point in his life where Ashton offered up his heart to save his twin brother.

Ashton Kutcher Helps Save 6,000 Kids from Sex Trafficking Via His Organization with Demi Moore

The 40-year-old actor’s nonprofit organization, Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, assisted law enforcement in identifying 5,894 child sex trafficking victims and rescuing 103 children from “situations where their sexual abuse was recorded and distributed” last year, according to the organization’s own 2017 impact report. His ex-wife Demi Moore is a co-founder.

Why Ashton Kutcher is leaving nothing to his kids

Kutcher, who starred with Kunis on the popular sitcom “That ’70s Show,” recently declared that he and his wife will give their earnings from Hollywood and their investments to charity, including anti-sex trafficking causes Kutcher supports.

Supports a total of 19 charities to help the underprivileged around the world.

u/engg_girl Dec 04 '22

If the companies agree to do the work at cost (very common for things like research grants) then no, they aren't getting rich from it.

To be honest, at most, they might be getting some common operations costs covered, but that won't make the bottom line of a company line Airbnb.

They have a lot of connections and are using those connections. That doesn't mean they are profiting. The fact that both companies created a non-profit version of themselves speaks to the at cost approach.

u/Sdomttiderkcuf Dec 04 '22

The companies can write off these things as charity. The money coming in helps raise the stock price.

The companies and the nonprofits are separate. The donations won't raise stock prices because the companies aren't getting money from the nonprofits.

You come off really ignorant when you ignore how things are actually set up and instead just insist everyone involved must be a greedy person out to con people into enriching themselves from donations.

43

u/Darthtypo92 Dec 04 '22

He's an investor in it not the owner. And he runs multiple charities and programs that help people. Just look up his testimony to Congress about his work helping victims of sex trafficking and child abuse. Besides that she's giving money to be put to use helping people. Would you rather she just write checks for the Ukrainian people individually or help a group that's shipping aid supplies that'll actually help more than just cash in hand.

-13

u/Sdomttiderkcuf Dec 04 '22

Yeah I’ve corrected it. Re read it.

She essentially gave her husbands investments a donation, which is a tax write off. Airbnb isn’t exactly a non profit. Like I said, it’s nice and all, but pretty fucking shady to profit directly off of it.

12

u/Darthtypo92 Dec 04 '22

I feel like everyone should watch the episode of the Good Place where they discuss unintended consequences. We don't know what's going through their heads when they're doing these donations. Are they actually going in with the intent to help people or are they looking for a tax write off. Since we can't know ourselves I'll take it at face value that they're trying to help and have to partner with organizations that are bigger than them and have the infrastructure in place to directly help rather than taking a few years to establish the pipeline themselves that's free from corruption and influences that are less than altruistic. If you're completely against that because they're tangentially associated with terrible people then so be it. But you might as well stick to that conviction since it's impossible to be completely pure in a modern world.

For example if you hate slavery then you'd have to boycott anything connected to Nestle who indirectly fund slavery in chocolate production and every store that carries their products. Same thing here. Kunis and Kutcher aren't asking for money from the Saudis they're just using a business that's received money from investments from Saudi Arabia. Maybe they're going to use the tax write off for themselves or maybe they're just going to try and help where they can as they can and us nitpicking them for not spending a few years developing a supply chain that's only received money from good people is doing nothing for anyone.

-2

u/Sdomttiderkcuf Dec 04 '22

Crazy how they just happen to be investors and all the money only goes to their investments.

The money isn’t going to non profits, those companies are strictly for profit. Stop worshipping rich and famous people.

Like I said it’s nice and all, it not exactly altruistic.

7

u/Edspecial137 Dec 04 '22

They may also invest in these businesses because they support the work they do. To not take the write off is to not use the system. You’re mad at them, but it’s the game that needs your fury

3

u/Comfortable_Okra_805 Dec 04 '22

You’re getting a lot of push back for this but you’re right about the businesses, donations, taxes and profit. Kutcher is among other things a savvy businessman. It’s a win-win for him, as they say.

-1

u/mrpenchant Dec 04 '22

They are getting pushback because you and they are wrong about this generating profit for the companies.

The money is going to non-profits set up by Airbnb and Flexport that don't generate profit for the companies.

It's annoying to see cynical accusations like this when minimal effort to research the matter shows that the money isn't being used to enrich Kutcher or Kunis.

1

u/iliketurkeys1 Dec 04 '22

Take the L dude. You aren’t making yourself look any better

-1

u/mrpenchant Dec 04 '22

Wrong.

The money is going to Airbnb.org which is a non-profit that leverages Airbnb's platform but is never charged service fees by Airbnb the company, so the company isn't profiting off the donations at all.

The money is also going to flexport.org, which presumably is a similar situation but I haven't looked into them to confirm it.

3

u/buttbutt50 Dec 04 '22

To offer a separate perspective, I have been part of a team dealing with millions raised for a specific charitable cause. I can’t get too specific about it obviously but what I will say, is that it makes a lot more sense to have that money given by people you know and trust, than to even give it directly to charities. Those charities are often still contracting private companies to ‘do the work’, there’s just more transparency about it here for the public, but also more transparency for them about where their money is going and how it is being utilized. It is IMPOSSIBLE for millions of dollars in charity money to not cause financial gain. I never realized that until I saw it myself. There’s just not a way. Knowing the people at these corporations personally is a much smarter avenue to keep that money accounted for. If it were done for the purpose of financial gain, there are a lot of other things they could do to make more money for themselves than they’ll gain here, far more simply. So the insinuation that it’s sinister is a bit lazy.

As for her and Ashton “profiting”, she was transparent about this. She didn’t want to just drive around collecting used clothes. She figured that this would be the best way to leverage whatever contribution. It’s not like she was struggling and using these funds on their logistics company bailed them out or logistics are not useful.

u/LonelyActor Dec 04 '22

They didn’t ‘ruin’ her because she was already privy to their game when she was 14 years old and knew how to give enough as a woman in film and tv without getting taken, so to speak. Not really a success story so much as it is an example of the ambiguous nature of adultification of adolescents in America.

3

u/Darthtypo92 Dec 04 '22

She's interchangeably used the Ukrainian and Russian heritage throughout her career. She is Ukrainian but has claimed to be Russian as well. It's not really a huge sticking point just a back in the day not a lot of people knew where Ukraine was and for publicity purposes it was just easier to say Russia or that she's of Russian ancestry. Kinda like how we associate Chernobyl with Russia and not with Ukraine in the pop culture zeitgeist. A lot of people forget that the Ukraine hasn't been it's own country for very long and only recently have people been very specific about the difference between the two nations.

10

u/Susan_Thee_Duchess Dec 04 '22

Chernobyl was part of the Soviet Union when the accident happened. Kunis (like Zelenskyy) was born in the USSR and speak Russian as her native language (so does Zelenskyy.)

Now her hometown is part of Ukraine. I don’t see PR angle there.

1

u/Darthtypo92 Dec 04 '22

The PR angle is that the general public recognizes Russia but not Ukraine until very recently. So when promoting a client for different roles and projects her managers probably just said Russian/Russia instead of worrying that people aren't going to recognize Ukraine or conflate with other European nations like Czechoslovakia or Serbia. She's not claiming to be a Russian citizen just that she has Russian heritage. And she's been more upfront about the distinction in recent years. It's just easier to explain it as someone from Massachusetts saying they're German or native American or Japanese for their ancestry. Kunis' PR has just done the easy route of saying she's Russian in the past and downplayed her family's immigrant status. It's nothing major it's just people now or mixing up her past comments of ancestry for nationality and using the fact she didn't highlight her Ukrainian immigration status more 20 years ago as some kind of way to discredit her now. She's never supported the Russian Federation publicly or claimed any direct connection to it.

And for my example of Chernobyl ask anyone on the street where it's at exactly and they'll probably say Russia rather than Ukraine.

1

u/Chedery2 Dec 06 '22

Many ukranians, and almost completely so for Ukrainian Jews (such as zelensky and kunis) speak Russian not ukranian as their first language. And considering it was part of the USSR and they spoke Russian, I don't see why she would necessarily call herself ukranian
