Not only is she a supermodel and a supermom, but Niki Taylor is also super charitable.

The mom of four and longtime supporter of the American Red Cross is currently participating in Nexcare’s seventh annual Give campaign to raise awareness about the heightened need for blood donation during the summer and encourage people to become blood donors.

Taylor, 40, became a very vocal advocate of the Red Cross following a near-fatal car accident in 2001.

“I needed lots of blood, and I’ve always thought about the donors who gave me a second chance at life,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s important to raise awareness because every two seconds somebody needs a blood transfusion.

“We’re trying to create a culture of giving,” Taylor continues. “One donation can save up to three lives, and you never know when you’re going to be the one who needs the help.”

Niki Taylor is restless and raring to go!

After a long cold winter, the busy supermodel, March of Dimes ambassador and doting mom is excited about spending the summer months outdoors in Nashville with her energetic kids, Ciel, 5, and Rex, 2½.

“We all love spring because we can go on daily walks in the neighborhood and at local parks with our bikes, trikes, strollers, bubbles and balls,” Taylor, 39, tells PEOPLE.

“Ciel is the boss of the family while Rex is all boy with a high energy level. We are happy winter is over because we love our time outside together!”

Taylor is currently supporting the March of Dime‘s annual spring March for Babies walks, which promote healthy babies in 700 communities across all 50 states. In November, she will host a celebrity chef fundraiser in Nashville to benefit the March of Dimes.

Although Niki Taylor‘s 4-year-old daughter Ciel is a fast and fearless tomboy, she loves being a gentle big sister to her little brother Rex Harrison, 17 months.

“Ciel is a princess tornado!” Taylor, 38, told PEOPLE Saturday after she launched March of Dimes’ March for Babies at Miami’s Tropical Park.

“But she loves her brother. They play together every morning, and she helps him learn how to do new things. Now he is switching to solid food.”

The Nashville-based mother-of-four — twin sons Jake and Hunter, 18, live with their grandparents in Fort Lauderdale where they have childhood friends and jobs — is enjoying every minute of watching her babies grow.
