If you get your period in the middle of a Charli XCX show, don't panic because the singer has you covered.

She's not exactly on period patrol, but Charli is contributing to the erasing the stigma around periods. According to the Daily Mail, the "Doing It" singer has been throwing tampons during her shows, showering the audience with period positive-inspiration by way of free feminine products. During a recent set in London, Charli took a tampon from her pocket and twirled it around before tossing it into the crowd, giving concertgoers the prime opportunity to snap a fierce #JustaTampon selfie.

Back in August, Charli was forced to cancel the remainder of her tour with Jack Antonoff due to personal reasons, but we're glad to see she's still killing on the stage and promoting a good cause in the process. Charli's "free the tampon" gesture is only the beginning of her efforts to increase open period talk. The Mirror revealed that the "Boom Clap" singer had plans to market her own line of tampons, but unfortunately her management team wasn't sold on the idea.

"I really wanted to make tampon merch," Charli said. "That was a dream of mine for a really long time - to have tampons that say 'Sucker' on the side and 'P***y Power' on the box."

Well, that sounds...interesting. We have to admit that it would be pretty kick a** to see a young, female pop star take the period talk to the next level with her own line of tampons. No shade, but if shareable tampons can thrive, then Charli's signature tampons would probably go flying off stages and store shelves.
