The Sierra Club is our official charity for the month of July — and as such, we’ll be highlighting some of their fantastic initiatives to educate on climate change and the environment.

This coming Thursday, the organization is asking people to hold dinner parties in their homes to bring friends together and “speak up for bold, urgent, and serious action on global warming”. It’s all part of their new campaign called “Lightbulbs To Leadership“. Now obviously, this probably isn’t as exciting as, say, getting people together for the season finale of LOST (seriously, have you seen the fake endings yet?) BUT, this will be an evening of great discussion and action.

The national event will include a teleconference call with Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope and a special message from Green for All President Van Jones, who will talk about how we can curb global warming and achieve a clean energy future that creates green jobs and a healthy economy. There will also be letters you can print, and fill out to let your elected officials know you’re serious about taking action on this issue.

Also, Mr. T will visit your house. Not really. OK, maybe.

What does it take to host? Simply visit this link, register your party, and invite some friends! If you want to crash Parrish’s party down in Tampa, feel free. We’ll post pics after the organic liquor has worn off from the evening.
