The easiest way to celebrate Left Handers Day is on Twitter and Facebook.

You can also turn your home or workplace into a Left Handed Zone.
We are very interested in your ideas on ways to celebrate Left Handers Day and all of the good things about being left-handed, as well as ways to show right-handers some of the frustrations and difficulties we face in everyday life because of the way things are designed for the right-handed majority.
If you have any ideas, please add them as comments below and we will put them all together on a page and in a forthcoming newsletter.
Do a left handed Billy Idol fist pump and sing the chorus of Rebel Yell (inserting fist pump).
i think we should have a BIG parade everywhere and all lefties get to be treated like first class citizens
Last year I gave a lefthanded party, I only invited fellow lefthanders and we did lefthanded things 🙂
I am and have been for quite sometime tired of the, “I may be left handed but I’m always right” slogan. It’s okay for children but not for all adults and it doesn’t really accomplish any serious objectives for left handed people. I’d like to see statements such as, “450,000 people in the U.S. are lefties”. Put the faces of the presidents on
a left hand mug with their names underneath the pics and then on the other side of the cup in large letters, “LEFTIES”. Other
famous lefties could be put on mugs or Tshirts, etc. START putting pretty designs on items you sell. I probably would have bought a kitchen utensil set if it didn’t have “Lefty” splashed across the front of it. I would like to help, but I’m a grown up and I want grown up items. I like the left hand notebooks but I would like to see some without Lefty on the front. I think more of a variety and more choices are definitely needed for the left handed community. A more serious approach will help lefties get more SERIOUS attention.
I’m a left handy and encountered difficulties as my father was obliging me to use the right hand when writing . I was obliged to do my homework in his absence so that i avoid his remarks as he thought it an handicap.But whe i was positioned the first in the school after the exam of the final year in primary school .The school manager was so happy that he came to our home announcing the news to my father. mY FATHER was so proud and happy. He didn’t cease to tell me smiling ” even left handy you managed to be the best” in the school.
Take all your left handed gadgets to work and show them the difference. Even some lefties do not know they exist. The left handed ruler provoked lots of comments last year.
You could try turning all your computer mice into left handed ones. Just beware – we have had IT called out to mend the computers because nobody could make them work!
Just my humble opinion, but I’m not crazy about the “left means I’m right” type graphics/quotes. How about showing things lefties can do better than righties? I know I can adapt to using my right hand for things much better than my hubby or son can do things left-handed.Or show right-handers that do things left-handed (i.e. Phil Mickelson, PGA golfer). Just a thought. Thanks 🙂
My daughter (Iman) is the only left-hander we celebrate in our family. I understand there is a parade or festival or some celebratory event in Wisconsin each year. I was thinking about flying the family there. Is this true about a gathering in Wisconsin in August?
Fellow left-handed writers, let’s think over stories about being left-handed. Personally, I can say I don’t notice handedness very often, because left-handers look like they’re doing things properly (not “doing them right!”) and right-handers are just such a common sight.
When I say let’s think over our stories, I mean let’s be observant, creative and kind — not “just another minority group.” Many right-handers I know have never faced obstacles I always face, so I welcome the early news of the dates to come up with educational stories.
I’d like to see all right handers having to do everyday tasks as a leftie on left handers day.
