I am creating hyper-local emoji keyboards to encourage involvement in the city and community. The more top of mind something is, say the art museum or local park, the more likely someone is going to get out and participate in it.
The model is completely scalable as we are pairing with local community activists to decide which items to make into emojis. There is also an opportunity to work alongside organizations to create organization-specific sets.
Each icon takes approximately $4 to make and we're hoping to expand by offering each keyboard for a small cost in which a portion of the cost is given back to the community.
