Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Starting a Shelter for Abused Women

Hi everyone. I’m currently working as a social worker for abused children. I went back to school to get both Master in Business and Social work to pursue my dream of starting my own nonprofit organization. I started my own small private business but will soon be aplying for a nonprofit business. The first thing you need to do is to go to a lawyer and told them your intention of starting a nonprofit organization. If you established your business then you have to find a good grant writer so you can get the goverment or rich people to fund your vision. You also need to make sure to create a business plan that will attract the government to fund your organization. If your grant is approved then you can start searching for the right place to put your shelter.

I am an architectural engineering student at Missouri S&T. My friend and unborn child was killed by her abusive girfriend. My dream is to build a shelter for women and children and have gone through the first steps of starting a not for profit organization, unfortunately I went about it all wrong….I have to have help and support to get things done. I started a website…
