[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 
Elastic 
<https://www.elastic.co/blog/elastic-love-for-the-adopt-a-character-program-and-the-unicode-consortium> 
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 
images <http://www.unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html> from 
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.
