Support your favorite (Unicode) character

What’s your favorite character? Luke Skywalker? Georgia Mason? Captain Ahab?

Oh, sorry, we’re not talking about that kind of character. We’re talking about characters like the Hungarian double-acute u (ű), the four-leaf clover emoji (🍀), or the Katakana “ka” (カ). The Unicode Consortium is looking for people to “adopt” their favorite characters with a tax-deductible donation. Each character can have one Gold ($5000) sponsor, five Silver ($1000) sponsors, and any number of Bronze ($100) sponsors. As I read the rules, only recognized Unicode characters are eligible, so you probably can’t support Klingon characters.
