Let The Signatry Be Your Wingman
The original Top Gun is one of my all-time favorite films. It played a role in my first date with my now-husband. But that’s a story for another time.
The 1986 blockbuster is chock-full of famous quotes. One of those quotes comes at the end of the final flight scene when Maverick comes to Iceman’s rescue after Hollywood’s plane is shot down. (Sorry if all the call signs get confusing.)
Iceman looks at Maverick and says, “You can be my wingman anytime.”
We all need a “wingman” from time to time. A person or organization who is willing to come alongside and help.
That’s how we want nonprofit and ministry leaders to think of The Signatry – as your wingman in non-cash giving conversations.
