You may remember last month we brought you the story Spiral Out Tattoos and Body Piercings Allegedly Stole Over $4000 From The Autism Society Of Illinois Central Chapter! .
In that story it was brought to the spotlight that what was reported to be around $4100 was “missing” and not “donated” to the Autism Society of America – Central Illinois Chapter from Spiral Out Tattoos and Body Piercings. A lot of speculation was made and a lot of comments were made that Spiral Out “spent” the money and was trying to replace it. Who knows what really happened, but this what we know happened.
The event was on April 21st & 22nd this year.
The first week of June it was brought to our attention that the money hadn’t been donated, and people were insinuating that the money was “stolen/misappropriated”.
We reached out to the Autism Society of America – Central Illinois Chapter and they confirmed the previous year it had only taken 2 weeks to receive the donation, but they HAD NOT received anything this year.
On June 17th we aired our story.
After our story aired Spiral Out Tattoos and Body Piercings. reached out to the Autism Society of America – Central Illinois Chapter and set up a meeting with them.
Well that date has come finally. Yesterday Spiral Out Tattoos and Body Piercings released this video statement (Thanks For The Shoutout!)
Autism Society of America – Central Illinois Chapter did confirm last night that a check was presented to them from Spiral Out Tattoos and Body Piercings .
At the end of the day, not matter what happened in-between the money did get donated in the sum of $5100!
As you can see in the video, the owner made several reasons why this year it took almost 90 days to donate, while last year it only took two weeks. The good thing is though that because of this story action was taken and around $5100 was donated.
And that is what Springfield Exposed is good for, to get answers that people wanted, and proper action. Thank you readers!
