Daily Dose Days

The Bruuuce.com website has an established community of some two thousand subscribers, who have contributed over $20,000 to various charities since 2005.

The”Daily Dose” is a single track taken from a live Bruce Hornsby show, put up for download on Bruuuce.com and updated daily. The premise of the “Daily Dose Day” is a twenty-four hour event, hosted online, where a new dose is published every hour, around the clock, for a full day. Often they are “special” doses, not published on the site before, such as an unusual collaboration or a live performance of particular note.  The Daily Dose Day invites a donation to a nominated charity, if the website visitors on that day feel suitably generous.

Our humble aim when beginning our first charity venture was to raise $1,000 for Multiple Sclerosis care. This was surpassed within hours, with a grand total of $3,000 in total contributions in a single day of online activity.

The phenomenal results of our first event were exceeded in the following years, accompanied by music contributed by our own website visitors. We begun launching the cover projects to coincide with Daily Dose Days – a CD (or even two) of Bruce’s music, covered y your very talented selves.  They recorded songs (available on this website) which have since been downloaded several thousand times. The same system of voluntary donations has seen charities for MS care, ALS, cancer research and the NSPCC for abused children benefit by over $20,000.

The 2011 edition of the Daily Dose Day took things a stage further, with music from five different artists and groups every hour, for a 25 hour period. Followers of Bruce, Dave Matthews, Phish, Bela Fleck and the Grateful Dead responded magnificently.

Our contests on these special days have given out some great prizes, from music festival tickets to signed memorabilia. We’ve been generously sponsored as well, most notably by the Bruuuce.com Board legend Mr David Day.

Thank you all so much for your generosity in supporting the Daily Dose Days – there will be more to come!
