Holden’s bar mitzvah project is to spread positivity and kindness to the world. 


His project is to promote bucket filling, which means making others feel happy by giving compliments. His Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Kessler, first taught him about bucket filling and inspired his project.  


This is a short video that goes into more detail about this project:


He created the website to encourage bucket filling and spreading happiness to the world. He needs your help to make this website great!


He would love for you and your kids to fill the bucket of someone whom you love and share it with us. It's as easy as recording the video and emailing it to us at You can even submit more than one!
