International Lefthanders Day

Wonder what it’s like to see the world from a “left-handed” point of view? On International Lefthanders Day, August 13, you get to explore that world for a day.

Did you know Presidents Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were all left-handed? Rock out with Paul McCartney or Jimi Hendrix, the world’s greatest left-handed guitarist.

(Stevie Ray Vaughan, born right-handed, learned to play a left-handed guitar like his hero, Hendrix). There’s also Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts and Lady Gaga, left-handers all.

In baseball, there were the legendary “southpaws, Babe Ruth and Sandy Koufax.

International Lefthanders Day 2021 will be observed on the 13th of August to celebrate the differences and distinctiveness of left handed individuals.

This day day was first celebrated by Dean R. Campbell, founder of the Lefthanders International, Inc in 1976.

So, if you’re left-handed, grab your left-handed cup and make a toast to all left-handers, everywhere!
