According to reports, governors from twenty-seven states across the US have teamed up with Hallmark Greeting Cards to send every new parent a card following the birth of their baby. The card includes a personal message from the governor of their state, a detachable growth chart and an up-to-date immunization schedule. This vaccination initiative attempts to make parents fully aware which vaccinations their newborn baby should receive.

The Healthy Home Economist, reporting on the story, stated, “Having the cards actually come from state governors themselves is the new twist which gives the program’s ‘friendly’ pressure to vaccinate a more personal and authoritative touch.” [1]

 

 

 


Look Who Else is Holding Hands with Hallmark

As well as their links to UNICEF, Hallmark Cards has interesting links to other organizations which need to be exposed. The chairman of Hallmark Cards is Donald J. Hall, and the current president and CEO of Hallmark Cards is David E. Hall. Both men are trustees to a company called MRIGlobal. [10, page 14]

MRIGlobal “offers world-class expertise and experience in bioanalytical model development, testing, and validation—a complete array of services for the development and licensing of new vaccines.” They also supply “government and industrial clients with high-purity, reference grade chemicals.”

FYI - Hallmark holds hands with Crayola too!

 

 

Hallmark owns:

In addition, Hallmark Cards is the property manager of the Crown Center commercial complex, adjacent to its headquarters, and the owner of lithographer Litho-Krome Co.

It doesn't really appear that Hallmark has a hand in this as much as these state governors are buying custom hallmark cards.  I am sure if Vax Truth wanted to purchase custom Hallmark cards to send to people with an anti-vax message they would do that as well.

as with any thing - it's the company you choose to keep - Hallmark is not the only card company out there

 

consumer do vote with their wallets- many choose to only deal with companies that meet their ethical/ moral standards- so I do see it as mattering to many
