TMZ reports:

Drake and The Game are teaming up to help cover funeral costs for 6 people — including 5 young siblings — who died in a tragic house fire in Ohio … even though the rappers didn’t know the victims.

The Game got the ball rolling after learning about Anna Angel — who was working her shift at Burger King when a fire consumed her home while her 5 young children and her boyfriend were trapped inside. There were no survivors.

Game Instagram’d about the tragedy … saying, “I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time.”

The Game — who recently pledged to donate $1 million dollars to people in need as part of his Robin Hood project — says he was on the phone with Drake when he read about the woman’s loss … and they each agreed to donate $10,000 to help Anna cover the burial costs.

Drake later posted about the situation … saying, “What [The Game] is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother.”

In addition to their $20K … the producers of Game’sTV show, “Marrying the Game”also pitched in $2,500.

As we previously reported, Game recently donated several thousand dollars to help out with another funeral after a 6-year-old girl was shot and killed in front of her home. Snoop also pitched in after learning about Game’s contribution.
