Assistance for women who need help over the Christmas period, worth a sticky?

Just a thought, whilst MN is a vital resource for women all year round there are many posters who can't/don't post over the Christmas period, so topics aren't as busy as they are at other times of the year.

Is it worth having a sticky with useful numbers such as Womens Aid, Shelter, NHS Direct (or whatever their current title is), Al Anon, the Samaritans etc to point people to RL & punctual help?

It must be dreadful if you post on here for help during Christmas Eve/Christmas Day/Boxing Day & either feel ignored or that nobody cares enough to answer...

Plus if a woman finds herself needing help very quickly then a sticky would be faster than starting a thread & waiting for responses.

Thoughts? smile

Hi MidnightVelvetthe4th - thanks so much for this lovely suggestion. We'll look into it.

I think it's a great idea for those people who don't have stickies turned off - maybe it could go in the floating blue bar for mobile site as well?

And we could bump it up with pictures of brew (mulled wine?).
