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.

ajjeMost of my goals are selfish. Maybe this one is as well...

I see so many homeless people on the streets of the city where I live. For some time, I’ve been thinking I need to do something more for others; others who are not friends and family. Somehow, seeing poverty and homeless people every day really moves me. At the moment I don’t think I have the time to help out at a homeless people’s shelter (which I might do, at some point). But I can donate. Money, clothes, other stuff. I’m going to work on this. 12 months ago

Tomorrow, there are events all over the country to comfort foster/homeless/hospitalized kids by getting them homemade blankets! You don’t even need to sew or knit, in most cases. projectlinus.org 2 years ago

viobioeasy way to donate

This organization is amazing in providing basics to homeless youth and connecting them with all the services that make such a huge difference, e.g. getting an ID and working through the employment process. We had a fun fundraising hike yesterday. It’s easy to donate online:
