A remembrance ribbon which commemorates the deadly ferry sinking that took more than 300 lives two years ago was designated as a computing text standard, the Unicode Consortium said Wednesday.You can see it right there at the Unicode consortium site:
The yellow ribbon, previously called the "reminder ribbon" under the code "1F397," changed its title to "Remember 0416" after an anonymous sponsor made a donation to the Unicode Consortium.

There is no limit to the number of sponsors for a specific character at this level. Bronze sponsors are listed on the Unicode Consortium website with their characters, but do not have the option to include a hyperlink.You can see that some (like the unicorn 🦄) already have two sponsors listed. I'm now on the edge of my seat wondering if some Japanese netizen is going to pick up on this and send in their $100 check to sponsor the ribbon on behalf of the "DOKDO IS TAKESHIMA" foundation.
