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.

megslackPursuing Bachelors Degree, Needs beneficiary

As a student of the Culinary Institute of America, i’m about eight months out from graduating with my Associates degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. Paying for this though, has not been easy and I managed to save a large amount of money working three jobs in high school and taking out loans. Upon graduation, I would like to begin my Bachelors Degree in Business Management at The Culinary Institute as well, but am unable to take out a loan to do so. This is something I have a passion for and love and one day want to own a business and open a bakery cafe. 13 months ago

Hello, I am currently in college seeking a biology and spanish BA with a minor in Chemistry. I hope to use these degrees to help me get into medical school in about 2 years when I apply. I am currently having financial difficulties in paying my rent. I can’t work as much as I would like to to be able to pay my rent, buy groceries, and save money. I need help. If you are willing and able to help and would like to know more about my situation, please contact me at 3 years ago
