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.

- The Robots.

Camp Movies

The summer is here and that means another gathering with my SPARKY family!

One of my favorite things to do at camp is to make movies with them. With the campers as the characters we have remade, The Lion King, Peter Pan, and West Side Story! The easiest way to watch them is at my youtube site!

Another Summer, A Pocket Full Of Memories.

I recently got promoted at my camp this summer to Assistant Director. I’m super excited about it as it will allow me to make the changes to camp that I have always dreamed about since I started there about 5 years ago.

I recently got involved with a good friend of mine who is as passionate about change as I. Our main goal this summer is to give awareness to the camp and involve the special population into our community.

We plan to accomplish this with the main goal to produce a documentary about the camp, showcasing the campers and our struggles making a special needs camp work in the community.

Any ideas or support will be very much welcomed!
We are looking for people to help sponsor us, and our effort.



Help Make My Camp Survive

I have worked at a summer camp for children with special needs for the past four or five years now. This last summer the program was cut drastically, to the point that half the children were unable to come. The camp was then combined with a “normies” camp.
For many of these kids camp was one of the few things they had to look forward to. It was a place where they weren’t treated by their special needs but as regular children. I will be heart broken if the camp is not there for them.

I’d love to hear ideas or suggestions on what I should do to make sure this camp survives. The children become family to you after working with them for that many years. Any ideas, or even stories you’d like to share?
