The Bucket’s mission is to help people lead more fulfilling lives by embracing their own mortality. Equal parts philosophy and utility, The Bucket is a place to come to see how acknowledging death changes the way you view – and actually ‘do’ – life.

Our goal is to help you put things in perspective and then give you what you need to act on that new perspective. All with the mission of helping you live a more fulfilling life and, eventually, die a more contented death. So take a look around, kick the tires. See what you think. We hope you will leave with a different way to look at, and live, your life.
