Maintaining this web site and all the information, articles, newsletters and responding individually to the hundreds of requests for help and advice we receive every week takes a lot of time and also a lot of money to maintain all of the online resources and services we need to use to keep it going.

We sell left-handed products to help cover the costs but that has always been a labour of love rather than a real business as the products are so hard to get hold of and the the volumes we actually sell are very low – the vast majority of people who visit our sites are after information and help and we are happy to give it.

Left Handers Club NewsletterWe receive a lot of comments from visitors and Club Members saying they love our newsletters and the information we provide and telling us how it has helped them and their children and sometimes made a significant difference –   we really appreciate all the support and encouragement we've received, and it makes us realise the importance of continuing.

Our newsletters and all our articles and content on the web sites will continue to be free but we ask people who have found it valuable to consider making a small donation to help us cover the costs of producing it and maintaining the web servers, email systems and many other online services that make it possible.

Contribute to the Left Handers ClubThis is entirely voluntary and you will receive exactly the same information and service from us whether you donate or not, but if you find what we produce interesting and valuable and are in a position to do so, we would very much appreciate any contribution, however small, to help cover our costs.

    Hi Jan and thank you for your support. A check in US Dollars is a very expensive way of sending money as it results in charges for you, postage cost and we have to pay about $12 as a clearing charge here in the UK. The Paypal buttons on this page are a much better option but you will need to have an account.

    I find your newsletters so interesting. My grandchild is lefthanded and it helps us
    to understand him.
    What I want to know is there a shop with goods for lefthanders in South Africa?

    I would like to make a contribution, But the only way I will do so is to mail a personal check. Please send me Name check should be made to, and a mailing address. Thanks, Robert Sandifer

      Thanks Robert but we would only be able to clear a cheque in UK Pounds Sterling drawn on a UK bank. The easiest way is with Paypal but if that is not possible thank you for your kind intentions! Our mailing address is PO Box 3149, COULSDON, CR5 9EG, United Kingdom

    I feel like a laboratory rat with all the scientific studies trying to establish what makes left-handers tick, live shorter lives, make us prone to various diseases and be unable to use a corkscrew properly.
    Why do we seem to be fair game for scientists and those who want to make fun of us? We are what we are.
    Perhaps if we started a campaign to have left-handedness declared a disability, with all the potential financial benfits, such terribly serious, but ultimately pointless studies and comments would quietly disappear 🙂

    Am I alone?

    Re the request for a left-handed keyboard, there was an item in New Scientist (I think – unless I read it here!) saying that lefties suffer much less from RSI *repetitive strain injury) using a mouse than right-handers, and research suggested that this was because when using a mouse left-handed it is nearer to the centre of the desk, rather than a right-handed person having to reach further because the mouse was out beyond the numeric pad. So maybe it’s better to use the numeric pad right-handed!
    I’ve always thought that the main advantage of being left-handed is that lefties tend to be able to do much more with their right hands than right-handers can with the left.
    Incidentally, I don’t know how many people know the alternative keyboard shortcuts for copy (Crtl Ins) and paste (Shift Ins) – these allow you to cut and paste with your right hand without letting going of the mouse with the left.
    Thanks for the newsletters and the lefty products – keep up the good work!

    Hi Lauren & Keith ! (womans first)
    Congratulatios for your return.
    Since I ´m a left writer, I have been seeking for a PC keyboard for left handers; means with numbers at the left side.
    There ion not available in my country (Chile) and in Internet, in other countries that I found, are so expensive to import.
    I wrote to a chineese companies, but have no answer.
    How can I get some of them at low price for my use and, if do so, to sell to a left handers friends?
    Thanks.
    (Sorry, my english is so litlle).

    • Andrew says:

      Left handed keyboards? No need! Just buy a separate keypad and put it on the left of your keyboard. If you really want to, you can find keyboards without a built-in keypad. Personally, I use a Logitech laser mouse shaped for the left hand and I love it. But I can’t mouse and use a left hand leypad at the same time, so I make do with the numbers on the top row of keys. (The mouse does not seem to be available any more – a shame. But it annoys the heck out of right-handers who want to borrow my PC at work, espaecially as the buttons are reversed as well!).

    Hi Youse 2 Wonderful People!

    May I suggest setting up a PayPal account for receiving payments not only for contributions, but also for products? this would eliminate any currency exchange questions, too. I would be more willing to pay if I could use PayPal.

    Thanks a bunch, again!

    • Keith says:

      Hi Ron, thanks for the suggestion but we DO already have Paypal as an option for payment and have had it for about 5 years! Just click the Paypal checkout button on our shopping cart page after you have selected your left-handed items.

    I think you are quite right to ask for support and contributions towards what you are doing. Have you considered offering to list your contributors on your website as an acknowledgement? It could be a form of sponsorship.

    • Keith says:

      Thanks for your support Noel. It is a nice idea but I am not sure people would want their names displayed online – what do others think?

      • Lauren says:

        Actually, I think it’s rather a nice idea, as long as it’s optional. (and only available to people/companies that really have supported us!!) I’ll have a think about how it might work.

  11. Richard Zimmerman says:

    For those of us who live in the U.S. and interested in contributing to this worthy, it would be very helpful if your contribution amounts were designated in dollar amounts!!?? It would make things so much easier for us here in the states.

    Can U.S. dollar conversion amounts be easily added and when??

    • Keith says:

      I have had a few people ask about conversion so to other currencies so I have added a note on current rates to the page and also a link to a live currency converter to use. Paypal will convert currency at their exact rate applicable at the time of the payment so there may be some minor variations from my example rates. I hope that helps and thanks for your support.
