New Delhi: Actor Purab Kohli, who is associated with a number of social causes like animal welfare, welfare of under-privileged women and children, says he is baffled why people associated with a good cause are not paid well.

“Some of the groups I work with do such amazing work that I often wonder why these people aren't paid top notch salaries? Why do they have to go around asking people for money when their work is focused towards the betterment of societies?

“They fill in the gap and think and execute areas that governments overlook or are too busy to notice. My contributions towards them are minuscule compared to what change these people bring about in the lives of so many,” the actor said in a statement.

The “Rock On!!” actor firmly believes that compassion and humanity are the most important things in life. As part of his philanthropic activities, Purab continues to be a part of NGO Toy Bank as a mentor since early 2009.

The 35-year-old feels he is spreading joy with Toy Bank as the NGO provide toys to under-privileged children.

Talking about his association with the NGO the actor said, “Toy Bank works very hard towards bringing that play back into the lives of under-privileged children. By volunteering with them I feel like they bring back some in my life too".
