Mumbai: Actor-producer John Abraham says his mother is involved in a lot of social work for humans as well as animals. Ahead of Mother`s Day, which falls May 12, he says she is the best mom one can have.

"Thank god I have got someone like my mother in my house who devotes more time to these children and also animals and old age homes... That`s the best mother one can have," the 40-year-old said here Saturday at an event organised by Make-A-Wish Foundation.

He credits his mother for teaching him how to be more caring towards the lesser privileged.

"From there I actually started understanding about this and my mom introduced me to Make-A-Wish," he added about the efforts of the NGO, which seeks to fulfil the wishes of kids affected by life-threatening diseases.

John himself supports a lot of causes, but he says the need is to do something more.

"I want to do something definitive. I am thinking about doing something out-of-the-box because if in today`s time we do something regular, it goes unnoticed. I am talking about Make-A-Wish and not myself," John said.

"I`ll have to understand what can I do that gets the media to support it," he added.

John will soon be seen in ‘Shootout at Wadala’, which hits theatres May 3.
