Drake & The Game

We'll Help Pay for Funerals

After 5 Kids Die In Tragic Ohio Housefire

9/17/2013 2:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

I've decided that celebrity hatred and scrutiny is a fun past time for the hopeless, ugly, useless and lazy... It's fun to critique the seemingly rich and beautiful because your life sucks... So sad

My heart goes out to this woman... I wish I could do more for my community than recycle and drive a hybrid car but my cash is tight as hell... Student ****ing loans for a degree that does not benefit me :( damn! I'm done talking now

Wow ...    

May they all rest in peace. I just can't imagine Anna's loss and pain. May her heart find peace.

Kudos to Game (whom I have never been a fan of) and Drake.

While a very nice gesture, $20,000 for 5 burials is hardly enough. It costs a ridiculous amount of money to bury one person let alone five.

It's a good start for them. I'm glad to see this happening and feel bad for the family. How terrible for them.

It is actually nice to read good stories about them and not the bad all the time. I remember a long time ago Snoop (dog) Lion was talking how the media only covers the bad things rappers do and never cover the charity or the kind things they do. It is just nice for a change to see charitable work being done.

I don't understand why you haters are saying something bad about this. That family had nothing but each other to begin with and that woman lost all of them. Good Lord, I can't even imagine ...
