On his way to the opening of his new, charitable coffee shop, Laughing Man Coffee & Tea, Hugh Jackman gave daughter Ava, 6, a ride on his shoulders. Wife Deborra-Lee Furness and son Oscar, 11, weren't far behind as they headed to the Tribeca location in New York City Sunday, Celebuzz reports.

The new shop is part of Jackman's Laughing Man charity organization, which he was inspired to create after meeting an Ethiopian coffee farmer named Dukale. "I met a man who changed the way I looked at the world. As Dukale and I planted coffee trees together, I began to see the potential for one man’s hard work to transform an entire community," Jackman told the UK's Daily Mail. "While working with Dukale that day, I was so inspired by what I learned from him and his community. I made Dukale a promise to do my bit to help. Laughing Man Worldwide is the fulfillment of that promise."
