Emojisprout Acquires Forgivemoji Campaign

At Emojisprout.com, we believe that emojis are more than just a contemporary trend or a mere addition to digital communication. They are tiny, vibrant reflections of the human emotional spectrum, allowing people to express themselves beyond the confines of language. Each emoji represents an emotion, a feeling, or a symbol that brings people together, transcending geographical and cultural boundaries. In this context, the #forgivemoji campaign struck a chord with us. It was an endeavor that went beyond proposing a new emoji – it was a mission to make forgiveness a universal digital language.

Launched by a coalition of peace-building and charitable organizations in Finland, the #forgivemoji campaign aimed to propose an emoji symbolizing forgiveness in the year 2019. They understood the gap in the digital expression landscape, where there were multiple emojis to express anger, joy, or sadness but none to convey forgiveness. The closest emoji to this are 🤗 Hugging Face emoji, 🫶 Heart Hands emoji, 🤲 Palms Up Together emoji, and of course the 🙏 Folded Hands emoji

The initiative was a promising start as the campaign was picked up by quite a few news outlets including The Guardian, Metro, BrightVibes, and OurSundayVisitor just to name a few.

However, it lost its initial momentum over time due to various factors, such as changing digital trends and competing initiatives. The final blow came when its proposal to the Unicode Consortium was rejected.

This is where our journey with Forgivemoji.com begins. Despite the slowdown, we at Emojisprout.com saw the potential in the campaign, its power to incite change, and its capability to make a significant impact on digital communication. We understood the need to preserve this piece of history and decided to purchase Forgivemoji.com.

Our vision is to carry forward the spirit of the #forgivemoji campaign, to rekindle its momentum, and to make the world see the beauty and importance of expressing forgiveness digitally. We believe that the idea of forgiveness is universal. It’s a core human value that transcends race, religion, and culture. In an era where digital communication plays a vital role in our daily lives, we believe an emoji conveying forgiveness would make a significant impact.

We also understood the campaign’s intent to urge managers of the Unicode Consortium to add the forgiveness emoji to the collection. Emojis are ubiquitous in our daily communication, but amidst the vast array of emojis, we found it striking that none quite encapsulates the sentiment of forgiveness. We aim to change that and strive to realize the campaign’s initial objective.

As part of this journey, we will seek community participation, encouraging people from all walks of life to contribute their ideas for a forgiveness emoji. We believe in the power of unity and inclusivity and intend to tap into the collective wisdom of our vibrant community.

In conclusion, our decision to purchase Forgivemoji.com was inspired by our commitment to enriching the digital language landscape. It was propelled by our belief in the power of forgiveness and our vision to preserve and enhance the noble mission started by the #forgivemoji campaign. As we forge ahead, we look forward to your support and participation in making this dream a reality.
