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.

When my husband and I purchased our home in 1991, we were thrilled to have a home we could raise our family, call our own, and fix up. Well, we have raised our family, we are still in it, and we have not fixed it up. I don’t have a poor health story, but I can tell you we have had poor luck. Like so many people, we have struggled to maintain our house, multiple things need to be done and we simply can not afford the repairs needed. We both have college age children and have truly put our own needs aside until they can get what they need. We work more than one job to make things work for us and barely have enough left over to take care of the things we need to. Just looking for a little help not a handout.

cls123Home Makeover

We recently purchased a home in Moodus, CT. We moved from upstate New York to help out our family. Dad was getting older and experiencing a lot of health issues-as we are both Nurses we came to help out. Mom recently diagnosed with breast Cancer and underwent major survey. Needed help to care for Dad. Sisters husband diagnosed with ALS hoping also to help her out . Unfortunately we moved in a hurry – as all were not well. Shortly after our move Dad and brother-in law passed on.
Thats how we arrived here in Moodus.

We have purchased a cute little Mill House on the Moodus Lake. It was built in the 1800 s and is just full of character ! We really love this home and would like to restore it and update it- We are hoping you can help with this. We are both very hard working Nurses just getting started here in Ct.
Any help would be appreciated. It is a beautiful area and you would really enjoy being here. We love your show and are avid fans. You do a great service to many people and we have a deep appreciation for that.

Hope to hear from you in the near future.And thank you for reviewing this. We hope to see you in the near future.

Sincerely , Cheryl Schloop 22 months ago

my husband has been a coalminer all his life. it is dangerous and everytime he leaves for work i pray that he comes home. its very stressful and hard work. he is so exhausted after working and has a day off he no energy to do work or repairs on our house. he feels very guilty about this and feels he has let us down. i would love for a home makeover for him to show my gratitude for his hard and dangerous work. The stress of his work and guilt causes him so much anxiety that he had a stroke at the age of 35 (last year). our house is in such disrepair that we despertly need this for his health and well being 2 years ago


KiriieshaThe love i want too give back to my mother :)

I would love to win a home maker, the only reason for me wanting too win this, is because i would love to give back the love my mother had given us children.
She is a very generous, caring woman and i love her dearly. She works for Womens Refuge and helps all the children and families who live in a voilent background and household and gives her lovely heart and soul to them. She even gives families a home to stay at her house and looks after them so well, she’s so loelyhe only bad thing is that her house is prially fallen to peices from unsafe roofs rotten weather boards, the shower runs down the wall and has rotten away the walla, she has tryed too fix it up but never has the right way of doing it. These are the things that need looking after.
-Has about a medium sized paddock and garden that needs some time on it
- The rofes too be fixed from falling in
- The weather boards need to be fixed and have a side of the bathroom back on
- The rot boards too be taken care of
- Also some heating aswell
- The kitchen needs too be redone with the floor falling
apart theres alot its very sad, Our familyhouse use too
be amazingbut now its like falling too peices its quite sad. Its my mothers familyhouse when she was younger and all of her children and grand childrens house and i would love to help her out with your guys help, i wish i could help her as much as i can but we seriously don’t know how we could with no experiencs, or know where too start, also it would cost some much more then we can expect. But if yours could help make my mothers house a better and safer house it would be a dream come true. thank you for letting me enter this entry :) 2 years ago
