Besides providing the app, LINE has also taken various efforts to localize its service and contents for each country and region.

For example, we have offered special Brown and Cony Ramadan stickers to users in Islamic regions in conjunction with Ramadan, the month of fasting.

In Indonesia, we have also donated all proceeds for the sale of a set of orangutan stickers to a fund aimed at the conservation of this endangered species.
