This month, we honor two Cells for Cells Heroes: Brett Fisher and Christina Conrad. Both are interns at Kansas City based Burns & McDonnell. Together, Brett and Christina set a very bold goal of collecting 500 phones within 3 weeks. Because of their enthusiasm, they garnered the participation of Burns & McDonnell locations nationwide including Centennial, CO; Downers Grove, IL; San Francisco, Houston, St. Louis, San Diego, and Alpharetta, GA. Brett was even able to share the Cells for Cells story with a business connection at Kansas City based Roberts Dairy. . . Roberts Dairy donated cell phones, too!
In three short weeks, Brett and Christina collected a whopping 773 cell phones for Cells for Cells. They surpassed their collection goal by 155%. Wow! By doing so, Brett and Christina shattered the previous collection record of 122 cell phones held by UMB and the Polsinelli Law Offices.
We congratulate Brett and Christina for their initiative and determination. You both have made a difference!
