BUST interns even got in on the action!

The latest selfie trend is here: People are taking pictures with tampons to break the taboo around menstruation. Why should we be ashamed about a natural function of our bodies?!Plan UK paired up with V Point News to start this trend. The companies want to not only address stigmas and taboos about period, but raise awareness for the millions of woman around the world who go without sanitary products. You can text TAMPON to 70007 or go online to donate £3 to the cause. Tweet out your own selfie using the hashtag #JustATampon and check out some of our favorite selfies below.
