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.

mayersjesMoldova's abandoned children

In Moldova, one of Europe’s poorest countries, life is especially hard for the estimated 300,000 people with disabilities and for their carers, who receive little or no support from the state.

It is estimated that in country of four million people, several hundreds of thousands of children have been left behind by parents looking for work outside the country.

There have been some dreadful images of orphanages over the years. Children being kept in the most squalid conditions; tied to beds; filthy and neglected.

Does being poor mean that children are treated like this? It is a serious question. Do poor people treat their children in this way? Obviously those who love children would not treat them in this way.

Regrettably, not every Director of an orphanage is a genuine and loving person. Many have found it a good way to encourage people to give money and aid which they subsequently sell. The worse the children look, the more aid they receive.

We are creating this fundraiser for the abandoned children in Moldova and for the construction of a orphanage European level . Please help, the children are in need of clothes, food and better shelter. I will be taking a trip to Moldova in August.
