The supermodel and her family were rocked by the death of a male cousin back in 2009 and it inspired them to try and stop other troubled teens from taking their own lives.

Miranda Kerr stars alongside her mom, dad and brother in the Australian TV campaign for the Kids Helpline, called ‘Too Many Too Soon.’ The ad aired for the first time over the weekend (Aug. 27 & 28) and you can watch it here.

Miranda’s face flashes up on the screen during the minute-long ad, alongside a host of other Australian celebrities and members of the public who have been touched by tragedy.

Explaining why she chose to appear in the video, Miranda — who gave birth to baby son Flynn in January — says, “The sadness of losing someone, especially in these circumstances, is something we live with and we continually question how it could be prevented.”

The 28-year-old adds, “There’s not really a great awareness about the services available to kids and that’s why I’m behind this great cause. If we can reach just one child and let them know there is someone out there who wants to listen, that could help to save their life. I believe if my cousin had known of Kids Helpline it may well have saved his life.”

It’s a great cause. Let’s hope Miranda makes a difference! Watch the ad below.
