16 August 2007


13 August was Left-Hander’s Day. To celebrate it next year, check out the official site for the Left-Handers Club. The aims of Left-Handers Day are: to raise awareness of left-handedness and the challenges caused by living in such a right-handed world; educate designers and manufacturers to accommodate left-handers’ comfort and safety in new product and building design; celebrate the strengths and advantages left-handers possess, and dispel many of the superstitions and fiction that have surrounded left-handedness in many cultures for hundreds of years, and which still create prejudice today; provide the greatest possible range of tools and equipment specifically designed for left-handers to use—making everyday tasks easier than left-handers have ever experienced, and making a positive difference to their lives; and to promote research into various aspects of left-handedness.

The site has many other resources: a life choices survey, left-handed survey, quizzes on famous lefties, left-handed products, articles on being left-handed, how left are you? left-handed history, fascinating facts, brain teasers, and helpful Guides For Left-handed Children.

There's also another helpful site for lefties and it is www.SmudgeGuard.com. They offer some helpful tips as well as offering a new product that will help lefties get rid of the smudging problems when writing or drawing. You should check that out as well. =)
