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.

thinkinglovingdoingBuild An Orphanage

I know this is something that will take time. I will need to learn the language of the country of the orphanage location, I will need stable financial support, I will need knowledge of business contracts and more. But I think I am young enough to dream and to plan ahead. I am willing to give all my time to this because it is going to be worth it, investing in young children’s lives and providing them with opportunities otherwise unreachable to them. 22 months ago

sadiekayeThe Sadie Kaye Foundation

Sadie Kaye is a maverick documentary film-maker and acclaimed social entrepreneur with an insatiable appetite for adventure! In 2010 she sailed to South America (against all good advice) with a crew of British young offenders, she rode wild horses across Europe, she reported from inside Venezuela’s anarchic El Rodeo prison and she coerced violent street gangs in the slums of Caracas to disarm and join the Nobel Peace Prize-selected Proyecto Alcatraz.

2012 is promising to be just as busy with more adventurous projects and TV documentaries in the diary. She will return to South America & the Caribbean to build orphanages in Haiti and in Chiapas in Mexico, using young offenders from the UK as voluntary manpower. She’s also hoping to squeeze in another sailing expedition – this time to the Arctic Circle!

If you’re based near Chiapas or in Haiti and you want to meet Sadie and her team and get involved, email her directly at Keep checking Sadie’s website for details!

‘Sailing Miss Sadie’, the documentary about Sadie’s inspirational mentoring of 3 persistent young offenders who she had never met before while sailing a 60ft. yacht to Venezuela was recently broadcast on worldwide Sky & Discovery TV channels, with more screenings scheduled in the coming months.
