Since Russia attacked Ukraine in February, celebrities have shown time and again that they support the country.

Actress Mila Kunis, who was born there, and her husband, Ashton Kutcher, raised an impressive $35 million to help people flee the violence by providing them with shelter and supplies. Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy and their family organized the humanitarian fund Baranova 27, which has collected and shipped more than 80 tons of necessary items, such as clothing and shoes, as well as gas masks and chemical suits, to those affected. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively publicly promised to donate $1 million to the cause. And the list goes on.

On Friday, a slew of celebrities – most of them music stars – sent their love by participating in Global Citizen’s Stand Up for Ukraine social media rally. Elton John, Rita Ora, Celine Dion, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, the Jonas Brothers and many, many others posted photos and videos explaining their point of view, often with very personal stories. For example, Stevie Nicks wrote, “At 73 years old, I never thought I would see flashes of things my mom and dad told me about World War II in my life.” Meanwhile, John recalled giving a free AIDS awareness concert in Kiev in 2007 and since then helping AIDS patients in Ukraine and the surrounding region. They all called on world leaders to pledge billions of dollars at a pledge meeting scheduled for Saturday, April 9.

Global Citizen also asked non-celebs to share their own videos and photos, using the hashtag #StandUpforUkraine, explaining why they support the country and encouraging others to “give big” at the summit.
