Niki Taylor in 2015 World Blood Donor Day campaign

Supermodel Niki Taylor partnered with the American Red Cross and bandage manufacturer Nexcare to encourage people to donate blood. The American Red Cross says eligible donors are encouraged to roll up a sleeve to donate blood or platelets. Donors with types O negative, A negative and B negative are especially in need.

Niki said in a statement, "It's an honor to team up for another year of the Nexcare Give Program to help raise awareness about the importance of blood donation. The American Red Cross and blood donation saved my life after my car crash in 2001. This World Blood Donor Day, I encourage everyone to visit their local blood center, roll up a sleeve and give and then share their story on social media to encourage friends and families to get involved."

The program was launched to celebrate the World Health Organization's World Blood Donor Day on June 14, but blood is still needed today. You can find information about donating blood here on the American Red Cross's blood donation site.
