Help the widow and kids of the Doritos Locos Tacos Visionary

Todd Mills had the vision for the Doritos Locos Tacos that are now sold at Taco Bell. He asked for NOTHING from Taco Bell for the idea, he just "wanted his tacos" as he would say. Taco Bell made over ONE BILLION dollars last year off the Doritos Locos Tacos. Todd died on Thanksgiving day from a battle with brain cancer, and Taco Bell donated only $1,000.00! Yes, that's not a typo, the company who made over ONE BILLION dollars off Todd's idea only donated ONE THOUSAND dollars!

I am asking people to sign this petition and get the news out there of how badly Taco Bell dropped the ball on this! This man has a wife and 2 daughters he left behind, and I believe Taco Bell needs to step up here and do the right thing! They need to at the VERY least set up a college fund for his 2 daughters, and I do believe they should step up for Todd's widow as well! 

Shame on you Taco Bell! you make over ONE BILLION dollars off this man's idea, and the man asks for NOTHING from you, and you can't help his family??? 

I appreciate all support on this. I'm attaching a USA today link, and I also want to add I do NOT in anyway know the Mills family, I just simply think this is the right thing to do!

      They deserve some money from this, as it has made your company millions.

      This man's family should be compensated for his idea that has made billions for Taco Bell. They deserve it.
