John Abraham believes that today’s youth, if they want, can play a big role in helping the needy. He also feels that the big corporates should take initiative to support the poor and the needy. The actor himself is a part of an NGO run by Rahul Bose.
“I say the youth should contribute. Contribution is when each one of us are willing to give what is ours, without worrying about how much the other has. If we are all willing to do that, we will have equality,” the 40-year-old said.
John was at a press conference organised by actor-philanthropist Rahul Bose. The duo recently announced a concert to raise money for Rahul’s ‘The Foundation’. The organization works the upliftment of underprivileged children.
John has given away most of his clothes and other items to the organization. The actor loves to live a simple life.
“I have given my clothes away. Anyway I wear very little clothes,” he quipped, adding: “I have two to three pairs of jeans, four to five shirts which you will see are repeated in press conferences and some 20 t-shirts. You can instantly recognise them!”
“I really believe that leading a simple lifestyle helps and I am sure you all can also do the same. It is no use having many expensive things – you just collect and horde and then throw out,” he added.
