"I hope you're all having a great day. My colleagues and I are excited to have been given the green light to make a MumsNet TV episode about all things Christmas, so hopefully you should be seeing that on here next month!"
"But we can't do it without your help. We'd love to know your thoughts on the following:"
"Stress - It's a big issue for everyone at this time of year. What stresses you out the most about Christmas, and what are your top tips for combatting stress during the festive period?"
"Food - How do you save money at Christmas? Where do you shop? Do you use any apps to help you?"
"Also, if you have any homemade Christmas crafts you'd like to show off, then send them along to: email@example.com"
"Feel free to reply in the comments or send me a PM with your thoughts on those things and anything else you'd like to add. We might even feature your comments in the show..."
Has this actually been commissioned and approved by MNHQ? If it was, why wasn't it 'stickied'?
This request came in from a student from the University of Salford, who contacted us to say that their assignment for this term is making a programme about Mumsnet, and to ask us to ask for participants. We suggested that they post in our student/not-for-profit topic, which is where their request has now been moved.
