For Natasha Boyer a missed paycheck meant the loss of her home.
The 21-year-old Domino's delivery driver was struggling to make ends meet, and was recently forced to miss an entire week's work due to pneumonia. That missed week meant she woke up on the morning of Oct. 4 to an eviction notice that had been taped on her apartment door.
Boyer has a three-year old son that at the time was living with her parents hours away. Boyer was wondering if the notice on her door meant she would have to do the same.
A church near Boyer’s Ohio Domino's franchise called in a six dollar pizza order and informed the store that whoever delivered the pizza would have to hand over the pizza in front of their congregation as part of a church lesson.
The regular delivery driver chose not to go and so Boyer took the delivery.

“We’ve been teaching our church this last month about being generous, and so we did something special for you today,” said church pastor Steve Markel. “We took up a special offering for a tip for you.”
Markel asked what the biggest tip Boyer had ever received was to which she responded, “Ten Dollars.”
Markel then proceeded to hand over a wad of cash totaling $1,046. Boyer immediately dissolved into tears.
Later when speaking to the Washington Post Boyer had this to say, “I was trying to come up with a way to get almost $1,000 to try and figure out how to keep my home so I didn’t lose my job. My prayers were literally answered in a matter of hours.”
Boyer also said that she hopes this act of kindness inspires others to do similar things.
You never know how much a random act of kindness can mean to someone who needs it.
