Los Angeles: Actress Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will Smith get their kids involved in as much charity work as possible to make them realise the importance of helping others.

The couple have kids Jaden, 14, and Willow, 12.

"One of the things we do is a lot of charity work. Willow and I are very involved with an organisation that takes care of victims of human trafficking. When you expose your kids to that it gives them a sense of reality and a sense of purpose outside of themselves," quoted Pinkett Smith as saying.

"My grandmother was a community activist. I kept that particular idea alive with my family. It takes my kids out of the Hollywood bubble. And I really like that," she added.
