What does it mean to fill buckets?

** Bucket filling simply means that you do your best each day to show kindness and respect to the people around you. Bucket filling can be small acts of kindness like greeting someone in the hallway, or something bigger like sending a grandparent a special card. There are many ways to fill buckets, big and small, and we should always work each day to fill as many buckets as we can!!


Why fill buckets?

  1. Bucket filling makes the people around us feel happy.
  2. When we fill other’s buckets with kindness, we fill our own at the same time!
  3. If you live the life of a bucket filler others will want to be your friend.
  4. Showing others you are a bucket filler will inspire them to want to be a bucket filler too!
