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.

so glad they are helping this lady. I read some local articles on this family and they had nothing before the fire. they rode to work and appointments on bicycles, did not have a vehicle, so I doubt she would have the money to bury her 4 kids and the boyfriend. kudos to these guys for helping her out.

Normally I wouldn't agree with them broadcasting their charitable acts, but maybe they can motivate others to lend a helping hand from time to time who wouldn't normally do it.

Anyone who could turn this into anything negative needs help. I can't imagine anything but the mothers pain and at least she has one less thing to worry about. Blessings can come from all kinds of places.Thanks guys.

They both make millions every year. They NEED to donate $$ etc....to pay less in taxes. They could choose to donate however they want to. The fact that they are donating to REAL causes is outstanding on both of there parts. And this is also showing America we can ALL try to get along as this was a WHITE family. I have nothing but praise for what they did/are doing. You both have done a LOT of douchy things in the past. This proves you are both growing up!!? : )
