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.

Guessing they feel a little guilty about how they make a living promoting violence. They are still both useless human beings who help to destroy our youth with that crap they call music

I'm touched by this act of generosity. Maybe their kind act will influence certain other "celebrities" on this site to be better people.

to those of you saying "if they meant it they would have stayed anonymous"- #1 we should never put rules on generosity. I honestly don't care WHY someone does something good. Acts of kindness are contagious. The more you do good, the better you feel, the more you want to do more good deeds. So even if it is for publicity, it's still a kindness being committed and put out. When other people see/hear of other doing selfless things, they tend to me more amenable to doing the same. Good on ya to The Game, Drake, and everyone else who takes an opportunity to make the world a kinder place- whatever their reasons may be.

The reaSon they weren't anonymous is because now this poor woman's plight is public. They used their money and popularity for good. All there is to it- can't make it negative, trolls

The generosity is a good look... but 20,000 to cover funeral expenses for 5 is not going far enough considering the goal.
