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 think it's awesome that a lot of celebrities step up to the plate and help the less fortunate. I don't think it's wrong to tell everybody about it either. Good for them.

I can't believe some of the remarks here. What they are doing is noble any way you look at it. I wouldn't care if they posted it on billboards, maybe that will get more people in this country to start being more charitable instead of making nasty comments on the ones that do help. Thank you Drake and The Game, for helping out these families.

That's great, but $20,000 will probably only scratch the surface of what that poor lady needs. C'mon guys, sacrifice another blood diamond necklace and REALLY take care of this woman's future!

My heart goes out to her and her family. I think what the game and drake is good but on the other hand they make more than 10,000 a day.They could afford to pay for all 6 funerals and build her a new house. They spend more than that on pair of shoes
