TechBuzz: Download Emojis For A Cause

With all the apps we can download in this world, it's time we download one that means more than entertainment.

Check out this new app called "Refugee Emojis."

The app lets you create any message with the emojis it offers, but the intelligent part of it is that the emojis are 36 different things that refugees need in the world. The app costs $1.99 (iTunes and Google Play) and the money goes to Doctors Without Borders, according to the Refugee-Emojis.org website.

The website also states that what happens with the donation is that Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) can help provide water, sanitation, emergency medical care, vaccinations to children to prevent epidemics, shelter, psychological assistance, and safe birth.

What a great idea! Hoping that more people would love to do this with their keyboards to help make a difference!
