(CNN) – The White House isn’t the only thing President Barack Obama has in common with Harry Truman; they’re among eight left-handed U.S. presidents.

Why is that notable today?

Well, August 13th marks the 23rd annual Left-Handers Day, so southpaws are getting their due.

The Left-Handers Club says on its website that lefties have to fit into the comforts of a right-handed world.

Today, the organization encourages left-handed people to rearrange the home for their own convenience and prohibit the use of right hands in their workspaces.

It’s not just about good-natured fun.

The Left-Handers Club wants to spread awareness about the special needs of left-handed children.
