What is BucketList +1?

BucketList +1 is a multi-week, interactive awareness campaign that provides resources to help small and large communities begin comfortable conversations around death and dying.

The campaign is an approachable, lighthearted, and inclusive way to introduce the concepts of advance care planning and its importance at any stage in life.

More specifically, we highlight the importance of making your personal medical wishes known to loved ones by completing an advance healthcare directive.
