Lefties Unite for Left Handers Day 2015 Monday 3 August 2015 PDF Print Wearing their slogans with pride is one of many ways that lefties mark the occasion of Left Handers Day each year Left Handers Day takes place on 13th August 2015 and left-handers can show their solidarity with a new range of T-shirts and accessories that proudly declare their handedness. Specialist retailer Anything Left-Handed have launched the new range of online merchandise taken from designs and suggestions by the 100,000+ members of the Left-Handers Club, to unashamedly celebrate the advantage left-handers feel at being part of this elite minority. Slogans such as ” “I’m Left-Handed – What’s Your Superpower?” and “Celebrate the Smudge” set lefties apart from the right-handed majority. Wearing their slogans with pride is one of many ways that lefties mark the occasion of Left Handers Day each year. Many left-handers go to greater lengths, creating Lefty Zones in homes, clubs and workplace, where everyone has to use their left hand for everyday activities. Others provide a Left-Handers Essential Pack for the right-handers in their lives to use on the day – meaning for once it’s the right-handers who have to adapt to household tools that aren’t designed for them to use! Thousands head online to www.lefthandersday.com to download free shareable content and take part in quizzes and activities. And of course, most lefties spread the word via social media, with clever artwork, witty slogans, infographics and comments all unanimously proclaiming their pride in being a leftie.
