Adding a dabbing emoji to Facebook & WhatsApp!
The "Dab" is a dance move that started becoming viral over the internet in the last three years. We think that adding an emoji of a person dabbing would be very useful for all of us, internet culture people and people outsidebit alike, go express ourselves even more. Adding such an emoji would not only make expressing our feelings and knowledge easier and joke around, it would even give the WhatsApp Application and Facebook service a boost in usage, since when a company embraces something that has become a meme, or viral, they get kudos for it and spread. We would highly appreciate if Facebook could add a dab emoji to both whatsapp and facebook and give us all the emoji we both deserve and need. We hope facebook would cooperate and give their loyal customers for years now, what we ask for. P.s. Facebook should be allowed to design this emoji in any way they wish. As long as it is dabbing. #DabMoji

Make the Assyrian flag an Emoji!
As an Assyrian, I believe that we are often misrepresented. Proposing the emoji flag is not so much for the sake of having our flag join the vastness of other countries in the pixelated world, but for the sake of recognition. Much like the LGBT flag, our flag is not representative of a nation or country, but of a people and a community that to this day, despite continuous persecution, still strives and cherishes what it loves and believes. The Assyrian people were once a powerful empire located in Mesopotamia, and to what many would consider the “cradle of civilization”. Their empire reigned from 2500BC to 605BC. Being one of the oldest recorded civilizations, Assyrians and Mesopotamians were responsible for many great scientific achievements both in a cultural and militaristic sense. Some of the profound achievements involved: Aramaic (One of the oldest languages) Writing (Cuneiform) Beer Ironworking The Wheel Royal Library of Ashurbanipal Math systems (Hours/minutes) Code of Hammurabi (Written law) Siege Towers (Military vehicle) Hanging Gardens of Babylon (Ancient World Wonder) As fate would have it, Assyria and the region of Mesopotamia experienced its rise and fall which in more recent times involved the Assyrian Genocide and the systematic death of Christian Assyrians within Iraq by ISIS/ISIL. So, now I come to you and ask for your support to help make this a reality and aid us in creating a form of recognition that could spark something great for the generations of Assyrians to come.

Interracial Couple Emoji
Interracial Couple Emoji Emojis are the universal language of the digital age. We use them to show our emotions, to give clarity and context to our conversations, and to represent the world around us. It may seem like there’s an emoji for everything, but that’s not the case. While emojis for people of color and emojis for same-sex couples both became a reality in 2015, one group of people is still excluded from emoji representation: interracial couples. Isn’t it time all love was represented? Why is Tinder involved? We believe all love deserves emoji representation. But that’s not all—research shows that online dating and interracial relationships go hand in hand. In fact, a recent study suggested that Tinder, and the resulting increased popularity of dating apps, may be responsible for an increase in interracial marriages. Let’s join hands, stand together and #RepresentLove. It’s time for an Interracial Couple Emoji. But keep in mind; it can take up to two years for a proposed emoji to complete the review, approval and standardization process. So sign the petition today!

We Need a Lime Emoji
There are thousands of iPhone users and social media users who want a Lime emoji based on numerous Tweets, posts, blogs, etc. There are dozens of food and drinks that require limes, whether it is margaritas, tacos or burritos.While there is a Lemon emoji, there is no lime emoji! How can this be? Thousands of Mexican and other restaurants around the globe serve tacos, burritos, margaritas, etc and could utilize the Lime emoji in their social media posts and marketing content. Lime Fresh Mexican Grill is spearheading this campaign because we believe it is crucial to have this emoji as part of the options people have to utilize in their texts and social media. Lime consumption in the US was up 13% (according to Produce Market Guide) last year and 284 million pounds of Limes were sold. Clearly, Limes are a highly consumed food and that should be represented with an emoji! The time for change is now! There are emojis for lemons, but not for limes. If we can get enough signatures and exposure, a lime emoji would open up thousands of restaurants and consumers to all new marketing campaigns and content to share with friends and other users. When you see or send an emoji, that emoji has likely been voted upon by the Unicode Consortium and approved to be standardized across platforms. So, we want to make sure they hear are voices!

#PARAEMOJIS: Help us get emojis for Paralympic sport!
There are now more than 700 different emojis. And if you look at sports, most of them are represented. You have sportsmen and women, as well as different skin colour options. However, there is one group that still does not have a place in emoji language: disabled sportspeople. The ultimate aim of the #PARAEMOJIS initiative is to include the 28 emojis for Paralympic sportspeople in this universal language (with their own gender and skin types), thereby increasing the visibility of Paralympic sport. By emphasising its importance we can achieve real inclusion. We need #PARAEMOJIS to become a reality! You can use your signature to ask UNICODE, the Consortium responsible for the worldwide coding standard for emoji characters, to include the 28 emojis for Paralympic sports in its update 11.0. This will ensure that #PARAEMOJIS reach your keyboard before the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and you will be able to cheer on your sportsmen and women in the way that they deserve! We can get #PARAEMOJIS with your support. Sign our petition and share the video for the initiative on your social media using our hashtag. This will help us reach more people, and together we can achieve an emoji language which is equal for everyone. Visit paraemojis.com to download the #PARAEMOJIS and share them with your friends. Thanks very much!

We Need A Pelican Emoji ASAP
There is currently no pelican emoji. This needs to be rectified immediately. Let's keep this short and sweet: Pelicans are awesome. They're one of the most recognizable birds on the planet and can be found on every continent except for Antartica. They've been around for 30 million years, eat ONLY meat, and some species still plunge-dive for their food. The chicken, turkey, duck, eagle, penguin & owl all have an emoji...it's about time we honor the majestic creature that is the pelican with the emoji it so rightfully deserves. Please join me in signing this petition requesting that The Unicode Consortium seriously consider adding a pelican emoji in its next expansion. For an in-depth take on how awesome the pelican really is, give Barry Petchesky's Deadspin piece a read(link can be found below this paragraph). He wrote this shortly after the NBA team, the New Orleans Hornets, changed their name to the New Orleans Pelicans in 2012. At the time, the media was poking fun at the name for not sounding "intimidating" or "tough" enough, but Barry beautiful articulates how fearsome the pelican really is and brings to light some little-known facts about this winged wonder. https://deadspin.com/5966336/fuck-you-pelicans-are-awesome-a-defense-of-the-nbas-best-new-team-name About the group that can make the change happen: The Unicode Consortium is a Silicon Valley-based group of computer and software corporations and individual volunteers with backgrounds in technology, encoding, and linguistics. The consortium approves about 50-100 new emojis every year, not including the different skin tones, after a thorough application and review process. In a 2017 interview, president and co-founder of the group, Mark Davis, said that in order to approve a submission, “People need to make a case as to why they think their emoji is going to be frequently used, how it breaks new ground, and how it is different from other emojis that have already been encoded.” According to Davis, there are 2,666 emojis worldwide, with the LOL emoji with tears of laughter being the most popular, according to a July 2017 Facebook survey of its 2 billion monthly users, followed by the heart eyes emoji. Italians and Spaniards favor the kissing emoji. Together, we can get the pelican emoji on the map. http://www.unicode.org/consortium/consort.html
