The best support we can get is ongoing sales. That's what really helps us make a difference.

The most valuable aspect of Dreamstarter is the ongoing partnership with ING. They continue to support us in any way they can.

Lauren Shuttleworth
Founder of Word with Heart

We've been talking to everyone about how inspirational ING's approach is, we love the way that you bring social impact into the core operations of the business rather than having it as an afterthought. Hope this is the first of many impactful, successful and beautiful things we do together!
