“MacGyver” was an US action TV show in the 80s (with a more recent reboot) featuring a brilliant professional problem-solver who could get himself out of any jam with whatever random materials were at hand. He always solved the most difficult situations. Fundraisers are a lot like MacGyver, constantly succeeding even when they don’t have the resources they need.

And the future? It’s already here. More.
