The current business format is profitable and has had sale increases since the business opened. The business is debt free and comes free of any encumbrances.

Why are we giving away Grass Roots Boutique?
For those of you who don't know me I am Nat the founder of Grass Roots. I also work in the Human welfare and the mental health sector as a practitioner on the Sunshine Coast Queensland. I travelled the world for years and during that time I experienced the devastation of sweatshops and fast fashion factories first hand. I wanted to create a platform and a catalyst for change at a Grass Roots level. Grass Roots is not only fierce fashion but it is also a human welfare advocate and I still whole heartedly believe in what it stands for. 
Since 2017 when Grass Roots first sprouted it's roots my life has shifted, including the passing of my mother. I have made a decision to focus on other areas of my life, including my work in the fight for human rights as a practitioner locally and internationally. I truly believe that individuals can make a difference at a Grass Roots level. 
 I decided to giveaway Grass Roots in a competition instead of just selling it for numerous reasons. One reason being it is a unique opportunity to gain publicity for our fight for human rights in the fashion industry and promote slow fashion. Another reason is it stays true to my own and Grass Roots motto of creating opportunity for individuals to have a quality of life. I truly believe that whoever WINS Grass Roots will have a life changing opportunity. They will be winning an OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE while having the financial flexibility of an E-commerce business that so many are chasing.
It is also a great opportunity to fundraise and raise awareness for an incredible non-for-profit ONE GIRL Charity, who believe as we do, that if you educate a girl you can change the world. 

$2 from every ticket sold will be donated to One Girl Org. 

What charity are you donating too?
ONE GIRL non-for-profit. They believe as we do, that if you educate a girl you can change the world. We are aiming to raise enough money to pay the high-school fees for 10 girls or also equivalent to supplying 80 girls with a year supply of sanitary pads in third world countries. Countries that we have been fighting for human rights for in the manufacturing industry.

What if I don’t know how to run a shop?
We will be providing one months worth of mentoring from handover date to support the new owners.  
 
What if I win the prize however don't want a fashion boutique?
We believe this prize is an amazing opportunity for someone. However the winner of this amazing opportunity doesn’t have to accept the prize at all if they don’t feel fit to run an E-Commerce store. Alternate options for the winner include selling the boutique, dissolving the boutique and selling off it’s assets and of course you can GIVE the boutique to one of the many who would love to own their fashion boutique. 

I have my own brand or business name that I would like to use, do I have to keep the boutique as Grass Roots Boutique?

What are the current owners going to do after the promotion has finished?
