[Emoji image]The Unicode Consortium's Adopt-a-Character program
<http://unicode.org/consortium/adopt-a-character.html> is an opportunity
to permanently adopt and dedicate an emoji, letter or any symbol on the
keyboard. The new Unicode 9.0 emoji
<http://unicode.org/emoji/charts/emoji-released.html> 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 like
in helping to further the work of the Unicode Consortium.

The emoji charts <http://www.unicode.org/emoji/charts/index.html> have
also been updated with these new emoji
<http://www.unicode.org/emoji/charts/emoji-released.html>, and with new

Messenger <https://www.messenger.com/>, EmojiOne <http://emojione.com/>,
EmojiXpress <http://www.emojixpress.com/>, and others. Soon after
Unicode 9.0 <http://unicode.org/versions/Unicode9.0.0/> is released, the
other new Unicode 9.0 characters will be available for adoption.
