THE "& US" PROJECT

The "& US" Project  is a series of benefit concerts created and produced by Giulia Millanta to support worthy causes through music. Great artists gather together to pay homage to great music stars of the past and the present such as Leonard Cohen, Tom Petty and Davide Bowie, just to name a few. 

All proceeds from the concerts go to a benefit initiative Giulia chooses to support for its recognized impact on society and on the safeguard of our planet. 

"I sat down one day and asked myself: How can I be of service with what I do?

That’s when I started creating the Benefit Concerts. These benefits showcase some of the most prominent and talented songwriters Austin has to offer while paying our respects to amazing artists that inspired all of us. 

This format I came up with has 8 songwriters perform two songs: one original and one by the artist we are giving tribute to."  (Giulia)

"HAAM (Health Alliance for Austin Musicians) keeps our music community healthy by providing access to affordable health care for Austin’s working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.

Since 2005  HAAM has helped over 4,900 musicians access over 56,000 healthcare appointments valued at over $44 million dollars. These include routine dental work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, out-patient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings and more "

“The impacts of these donations are reducing as much greenhouse pollution from the atmosphere per year as at least 700 rooftop solar systems, a minimum value of more than $10Million, offsetting more than 170 American carbon footprints for life, and keeping the equivalent of more than 9 million US vehicle miles off the road per year.

Thanks Giulia!“ (Chris Searles, BioIntegrity.net) 

Music brings people together and gathers them around these crucial issues: reduction of greenhouse emissions (CO2), conservation of trees and endangered species thus granting a future for ourselves and our kids.

We are protecting the core biological aspects of Earth’s climate and life support systems. 

 

These are the numbers:
PROTECTED:
◦ 1,401.8 acres
◦ +280,000 trees
◦ +10,000 peoples’ annual oxygen supply
◦ +25,000,000 gallons annual freshwater production
◦ +1,400 tons annual CO2 captured and stored in the forests
◦ +300,000 tons forest-stored CO2 protected

"I’ve always been very passionate about our environmentOur planet is incredibly beautiful and it’s no news that it’s in serious danger and those who are in charge don’t seem to care much about it. It’s up to us! We need to protect it!" (Giulia)
