Talk about giving back for your birthday! Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, who in 2010 used their birthdays to raise $109,000 for charity: water, a non-profit organization which brings clean water to developing nations, have taken it one step further.
The couple just visited Ethiopia with charity: water and inaugurated a clean well for a village of 400.
Spotted smiling at each other while receiving gifts from grateful villagers, the two witnessed the construction of a brand-new well in the Maego village, Tigray, and even manned the organizations new drilling rig, Yellow Thunder. The celebration for the new water supply was made complete when the Smiths danced and sang along with the community.

And while nothing tops quality time with their kids (and all those ties), these doting dads could probably use a refreshing, adults-only beverage at the end of the day.
In honor of Father's Day, whip up these celeb-worthy recipes:

Jada Pinkett Smith remembers a thing or two about young love – and is willing to share some words of wisdom for a lasting marriage with the recently engaged Miley Cyrus.
"Learn how to be friends, especially when you are starting that young," the Madagascar 3 star says is some of the advice she would give 19-year old Cyrus, who on May 31 became engaged to Liam Hemsworth, 22.
Pinkett Smith, in New York for the premiere of her movie, was also on hand Friday to share "mommy-talk" and advice with mom bloggers at The MOMS, a multiplatform lifestyle brand, and Capri Sun Super V Mamarazzi's event in Times Square.
"Forever is a long time," Pinkett Smith, 40, says of being in a lasting relationship. "When you are starting forever at 19 years old, and it is not to say that there is anything wrong with that, but it is just to know that what it is now and what it will be, it is just going to continue to transform and change."

They said their "I dos" in a secret New Year's Eve ceremony in 1997. Come December, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will celebrate 15 years as husband and wife.
"Fifteen years! It's amazing, isn't it?" Pinkett Smith told PEOPLE at the New York City premiere of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted recently.
"I was just doing the Today show, and there was a couple there who was celebrating 59 years of marriage, and I thought to myself, '15 years ain't nothing, you know?' It's just the beginning. That's the way I look at it."

For Will Smith and his wife of nearly 15 years, Jada Pinkett Smith, it's all about being supportive.
"We make the effort to always put the family first," Smith told PEOPLE at last week's Men in Black III premiere in New York City. "Being there for each other and being present with our kids is the most important thing. I take being a parent very seriously."
The couple are parents to Trey, 19, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 11, and Will flew back to L.A. from New York nearly every weekend while filming Men in Black III.

She's only 11, but Willow Smith will be dating soon enough. And it has her father freaked out.
"It's coming, and I'm nervous about it," Will Smith told PEOPLE with a laugh at Wednesday's Men in Black III premiere in New York City. "Having two boys and a girl, I realize that boys take trouble to other people's houses, and girls bring it home."
"So, the thing we are struggling with is the rules," he says, "and setting fair rules for the boys and for Willow, but she's not having any of that."

It was good thing Will Smith isn't promoting Ali or one journalist may be a little sore right now.
The actor was walking the red carpet for the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3 when a TV reporter kissed him on one side of the face and then the other, a TMZ video shows.
"What the hell is your problem?" says Smith, who then pushes and slaps at the amorous journalist.
Smith laughs about it and tells another reporter down the line, "He tried to kiss me on the mouth. He's lucky I didn't try to sucker punch him. ... Sorry, I said that on camera."

The carpet will be red hot – with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson,Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, and new parents Emma Heming and Bruce Willis, turning this year's Cannes Film Festival into a two-week A-lister date night.
Add in Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban – and the possibility of a Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith sighting – and you might forget they also show movies at the world's most glamorous film event.
The 65th Cannes fest, which will run from May 16 to 27, formally announced its schedule in Paris on Thursday, and organizers haven't stinted on star power.

Why us? That's what Jada Pinkett Smith has been wondering, after she and husband Will Smith became the latest star couple to be subject to rumors of marital strife.
Asked why the speculation won't go away, she tells French magazine Gala: "I have no idea! Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it."
She adds: "Will and I know the truth. We're waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over."

Kids' Choice Awards 2012 host Will Smith wasn't just blowing smoke when he said Saturday night's show would be the "best show ever."
As soon as Smith hit the stage he warned: "No one is safe from the slime." Especially not Oscar winner Halle Berry, who was the first celeb to get covered in the neon green sludge.
Also not immune to the show's slime-for-all was first-timer Chris Colfer. The Glee star was presenting with Heidi Klum when one of Nickelodeon's award blimps spewed into his unsuspecting face.
