The Unicode Consortium’s Adopt-a-Character program is an opportunity to permanently adopt and dedicate an emoji, letter or any symbol on the keyboard. The new Unicode 9.0 emoji are now available for adoption, including (shrug), (face palm),(crossed fingers), (bacon), and 68 others. The funds help the consortium’s work of supporting the world’s languages in digital form.
We welcome sponsors of the new characters to join existing sponsors
