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.

EddeDunnPrevention of Smoke Inhalation in Memory of Baby Gavin

Monday morning one of my close friend was awoken to the smell of smoke and went to the kitchen to investigate once she entered the kitchen realizing there was nothing smoking in there she immediately realized that it would be coming from her 23 month old sons room, who was three days from turning 2. Once she opened the door there was no visibility and she drug him immediately starting CPR. Once the ambulance arrived they gave him oxygen and exhausted their attempt to save him up to 20 mins after arriving to the hospital. At this time the possibility of hope was no longer there and they were asked to make the decision on whether or not to continue. Baby Gavin is no walking with God’s angels and I feel compelled to bring awareness to the need of proper smoke detectors and the ability to hear them. Also, would like to learn and give society a better understanding of smoke inhalation and things that can possibly prevent the use of open flame heat. 15 months ago

angeeb1The Bobby Joe Biggert Foundation

Hello. As I sat today, I realized so many people have created funds and foundations in memory of loved ones to help others who may be going through things. Foundations for families and children, CHD, Cancer, Diabetes. Most are in memory of a person who passed from something. Well my dad was a police officer who was murdered in 1989 while responding to a robbery. He was off duty and walked in on a burglary. Being such an awesome man he was, he lept into action but sadly was shot and later died. That was one of the saddest days of my life. Now I want to give back, I want to help the families who lose a mom or dad, husband or wife while patroling our streets and end up paying the ultimate sacrifice. 3 years ago
