International Left Handers' Day | Countdown to Celebration
One of our mottos is that we celebrate Lefty Pride all year long, not just Left Handers Day. Lefty Pride should be exhibited daily as left handers are left handed daily. But, we can't wait! Left Handers Day is Monday, August 13, 2018 and we are counting down!
Some people call it National Left Handers Day, Left Handed People Day, Left Handers Day or Left Handed Day. Whatever you call it, celebrate by posting to social media, go out with friends or maybe do a social gathering at your house. Make sure you let your right handed friends know that it's your day so that they can get the tab and celebrate with you.
Left Handed History According to Wikipedia

As the name suggests, it is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences faced by left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. It celebrates their uniqueness and differences, who are from seven to ten percent of the world's population. Hundreds of millions of left-handed people in today's society have to adapt to use right handed tools and objects.
