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.

We who live in these small towns like Upper and Tiffin come together when tragedy strikes. We try to do as much as we can, but we can't do nearly enough. So for any kind of celebrity to reach out a helping hand is amazing! It's unheard of where we live. No amount of thank you's will ever be enough, because what they have done with a few phone calls will help in ways most can't imagine. The help that might come her way now would never have been possible. So thank you to them for noticing, and more importantly thank you for doing something!

While it is good that anyone does charity I feel like the real people who should be praised are those like Charlie Sheen who give money all the time without seeking press.

I do believe that they have good intentions but they know those funerals will cost way more than what they are giving. I hate how they would rather give a stripper 50k but will only give something that means way more than a stripper only 20k.
