Thelefthandstore.com is holding two contests on their Facebook site. On August 13, from 9AM to 8PM Pacific Time, they will post a left-handed trivia question every hour. The first person to answer correctly will receive a $25 gift certificate. A mystery certificate will be worth $75, but the time slot will not be announced in advance.
A second contest will be for a $100 gift certificate. Whoever writes in with the best idea for celebrating Left-Handers' Day will win this prize. Facebook likes will be tallied at 8PM Pacific Time to determine the winner.
Lefty's San Francisco on PIer 39 will have lots going on in the store. From 1 to 5 PM, any purchase over $30 will earn a spin on the Prize Wheel - with a great selection of Left-handed prizes. Every half hour from 1 to 5 PM, staff will call out a left-handed trivia question, and the first customer to answer correctly will get a prize. There will be demonstrations of left-handed products, and lots of celebrating.
In the Walt Disney World and Old Town Kissimmee stores in Florida, any purchase over $30 will get a prize between 1 and 5 PM.
Left-handers are a large and misunderstood minority, accounting for 10-15% of the population. The world is arranged for right-handers, causing lefties much inconvenience, and sometimes difficulty.
For reasons not fully understood, left-handers excel in many culturally and politically important fields. A disproportionate number of the world's political leaders are lefties, including 5 out of the last seven US Presidents. Barack Obama is left-handed. Lefties are often found among the most well-known artists and creative people.
In the sports world, lefties are often terrific at tennis and baseball, with 25% of pro baseball players being southpaws.
Thelefthandstore.com has the world's leading selection of products for left-handers. Friends of lefties, teachers, workshops and offices with left-handed staff, and especially lefties themselves may shop on-line or at the retail stores on PIer 39 in San Francisco, or in the Lefty's stores in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World, or Old Town Kissimmee in Florida.
Celebrate Left-Handers' Day by joining the games and contests at Lefty's Facebook site or one of the 3 retail stores.
