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.

haven’t posted much on this as i didn’t have much to say. that’s changed now.

disclaimer—i’m on the board of Seattle Works who is hosting this new initiative…

now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about team give. this is pretty cool in that it’s a way of forming a giving circle with others locally, and you all learn together how to be better investers in the community.

why do this? well a couple of reasons. one—amplifies the impact of your dollar. sure every dollar counts, but pool your money with say 10 other folks and you make a more sizeable impact than a donation of $25.

another reason is that this helps you make the decision about how your money is spent. you’ll learn about different opportunities, and how to be a savvy giver. if you want to get more involved (other than through financial means) there’s that too!

lastly, and perhaps the best part of this - we connect you with others. it’s great to go out and do good, but it’s a lot more fun if you do it with others who have your back :)

will it increase giving locally? who knows. sounds pretty neat though. for more info, read all about team give here8 years ago
