If there's one thing Orlando Bloom is trying to pass on to his son, it's the desire to help others.

In addition to finding huge success in Hollywood thanks to roles in the Pirates of the Caribbean and the Lord of the Rings franchise, the 38-year-old continues to make philanthropy work a huge priority.

It's also the major part of his life that Bloom most definitely wants to share with his 4-year-old son Flynn.

"I hope one day he'll come on a trip with me and I hope he'll absorb from me some of that desire to look to the people around you," the proud UNICEF supporter told E! News. "I think it's always about in the environment you're in, having respect for everybody in the environment you're in."

He continued, "It doesn't matter what walk of life, what kind of social status, social class or background."

Bloom stepped out in New York City Tuesday night to attend the 11th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball.

Just this year alone, the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador has met with refugee and migrant children on the move in Serbia. Earlier this past spring, the actor also visited Liberia to help in the fight against Ebola.

"UNICEF invited me to observe the life-saving efforts led by local communities to tackle the Ebola virus," he previously told E! News. "It is truly a remarkable example of how mobilizing young people and community leaders can control the spread of an epidemic."

And while Bloom admits this his family lives quite the lucky life, it's important to teach the young ones that it's never too young to get involved.

"I'm fully aware that my son is very privileged and I'm fully aware that that's something that I constantly am trying to adjust to so he just doesn't feel like he's in the top 1 percent or whatever, he has a sense of the world," Bloom explained.
