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.

Give away money to a stranger
Untitled

I moved from California to Pennsylvania so that I could support myself and be independent as I am disabled from Lupus, multiple back surgeries (fusions), arachnoiditis, chronic pain and now neck problems. I am currently on Social Security. I am single and 57 years old. I found my own apartment and found that my social security is not stretching as far as I thought it would. I started living on credit. I have incurred about $10,000 in credit card debt. A big mistake, I know, I was hoping that I would have gotten on my feet sooner than this. I use to be a Workers’ Compensation adjuster for approximately 20 years. I am an Army veteran. I want to get back to work. I have contacted the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, getting $16 a month help for food, and am trying to get on my feet. I am using public transportation as I don’t have a car. There are tax credits for those who employ disabled people. If you have a job, please contact me. I am a hard worker and have finally gotten to the point where, with minor adjustments for my disabilities, I feel I can go back to work. I don’t want to be a drain on any system and want my life back. I need help with my finances until I get a job and can do it on my own once again. I am looking more for a loan than outright charity. I will take both though. I am not that proud.
