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.

Help my Family Extreme Home Makeover!

Dear Makeover Team,
I’m not sure if you do this in Canada, but if you do, that’s great! My dad has macular degeneration in his eyes and his eyesight is fading. I have low thyroid. My mom has high blood pressure because she has to do everything around the house. It would mean the world to us if you could come help us make our house more ‘livable’ for us. Our house is a mess because we never do anything to help, and it would really help my mom if you could come do this for us. They know I’m doing this, and I think they would be happy if it happened to us. Me and my mom watch this show every Sunday. Thanks for taking your time to read my family’s story. I don’t care if we make it or not, I think what you guys do is awesome! Thanks alot! 12-year old girl.

help my family extreme home makeover!

dear makeover team…im not sure if u do this in canada or not but if u do thats great! my mom takes care of me and my twin brother by herself. she had a job but they fired her she worked there for about 21 years. they fired her because they didnt think she could handle the work anymore because of her health.
she has scoliosis..and has to get a surgery done where they have to put a pole in her back..she also has pancreatitis and none of the docters so far have been able to help her. our house is a mess and is in bad condition. we were starting to renovate it but then when she got sick she couldnt do anymore. an extreme makeover im sure would make my mom feel more safe and happy. im sure this would mean the world to her. i think what you guys do is amazing!! and this would mean the worlld to us1
