International Left Hander’s Day is celebrated annually on August 13th. About 10 percent of the population is left handed.
Throughout the year, lefties are dealt a rough hand. They’re forced to put up with items such as doors, scissors and computer keyboards, to name a few. These items are crafted for right-handers. Special products are available for lefties. Products usually cost more and include notebooks, scissors, and can openers.
Today is an opportunity for left-handers everywhere to celebrate their uniqueness in “Lefty Zones” and increase public awareness of the “struggles left-handers are forced to deal with on a day-to-day basis.” Right-handers are encouraged to do everything left-handed for the day.
