Products to Make a Lefty’s Life Easier

International Left-hander’s Day is celebrated on August 13th every year – a day for lefties in a lopsided’ world in favour of right-handers. But that doesn’t make lefties any less talented. Think Allan Border, Nicole Kidman, Tony Abbott (the politician, not the author); there’s a whole list of talented lefty Australians. While the world, in general, is now more accepting of left-handedness, most things are manufactured for right-handed use. Not surprising, since lefties make up approximately 10% of the population only.
