One of my parents handed an A4 sized tampax box to me because it was out of our households "quarantine" (yes we do that).

Being extremely confused that I would receive such a kind and useful gift especially since I haven't sent off for anything recently lets just say :iiam: so I opened it.

I did type it into google and Ucas came up so I thought I'd ask here :lol:

That’s such a kind thing UCAS are doing. I haven’t received one.

Now this makes sense. I thought you were going crazy. 😅

I thought I was going crazy (especially since I am supposed to be starting uni and havent sent off for anything as of yet)
Its one of the few explanations I could find :lol:
Maybe someone else will come along in a min and have received them too

This is interesting. I’m going to run to the door every time the mail arrives from now on.

Imagine how sad I will be every time I do not receive a box. 😭

Why are UCAS even sending tampons in the first place? That’s weird.

Aren’t they meant to be processing college applications and that? What’s the idea behind sending tampons through the post?

Hilarious and now it makes more sense. I recall when this happened before, maybe they do it every year?
Just seems like some combined marketing and a bit of an aid v period poverty or whatever as students cna be quite poor.

that's actually pretty helpful ngl. so do they just send them out randomly or are they just doing it for lockdown?
