(NaturalNews) In an effort to make getting vaccinated seem more hip to people living in developing countries, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has reportedly funneled $100,000 into a new campaign that uses small rubber bracelets as a ploy to increase vaccination rates. As reported by, the pink and blue silicon bracelets have been trendily designed to remind children and their parents when it is time to get vaccinated, using a cheap fashion icon as a tool of persuasion.

Created by a student at Cornell University in New York, the bracelets bear a series of unique markings that represent different types of vaccines, as well as corresponding numbers that indicate when these vaccines should be administered. Each time a person wearing the bracelet gets an indicated vaccine, its corresponding symbol gets a "punch," indicating that its wearer is in compliance with the recommended vaccine schedule.

But the only reason this bracelet even exists is because the Gates Foundation funded it, according to the ideas organization Change Generation. Vaccine advocate Lauren Braun, the Cornell woman who was awarded the $100,000 grant from the Gates Foundation, came up with the idea after working with local populations in Peru's Cusco mountains. Her job, according to, was to literally chase down local villagers and push them to have their children vaccinated.

Because of the incredible amount of time this took, Braun came up with the idea of easily identifiable vaccine bracelets, which were a big hit with the vaccine-obsessed Gates Foundation. Now, Braun plans to apply for a "phase 2" grant from the Gates Foundation that, at $1 million, is 10 times higher than her original grant.

"If the pilot is successful, Braun will apply for a phase 2 grant worth another $1 million," explains "That would allow her to invest in more pilots (she is keen to try it in Africa) and develop more bracelet sizes.... Braun is also interested in talking to pharmaceutical groups about public-private partnerships, seeing that as a way to reach scale quickly."

Braun's current endeavors align perfectly with the long-term goals of the Gates Foundation, which aims to vaccinate every single person on the planet by 2020. It is no surprise, then, that this sinister organization is now backing this new bracelet scam with large cash injections -- it is just one of many ridiculous marketing ploys being used to rope in the masses and get them vaccinated, by any means possible.

US governors team up with Hallmark to send vaccine reminder cards to new parents

Back in April, it was reported by's Christina England that the governors of 27 states had teamed up with greeting card giant Hallmark to tug at the emotions of new parents in an effort to push vaccinations. According to England's report, the scheme involves sending out cute, fuzzy greeting cards in the shape of a teddy bear that urge parents to get their newborns vaccinated according to the official vaccine schedule.

"The card includes a personal message from the governor of their state, a detachable growth chart and an up-to-date immunization schedule," writes England.

Adding to this, The Healthy Home Economist wrote that the program, known as "For America's Babies," attempts to utilize a more "personal and authoritative touch," directly from state governors, to exert "friendly" pressure on parents to have their children vaccinated.

Other common tactics used to market vaccines to parents include sending out text message reminders, creating children's programming on television with pro-vaccine themes, advertising vaccines at cinemas and even coercing parents into being "superheroes" for their children by agreeing to get them vaccinated.
