Drake, The Game to Pay For Ohio Fire Victims' Funeral Costs

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Drake and The Game are teaming up to help cover the funeral costs for six people, including five kids, who died in a tragic Ohio house fire this summer.

The craziest part? The rappers have no connections to the family.

Anna Angel was working her shift at Burger King when a huge fire consumed her home with her five young children and her boyfriend trapped inside.

There were no survivors.

The Game heard about this, and wrote on Instagram, "I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time."

He recently pledged to donate $1 million to individuals in need as part of his new Robin Hood project, and deemed this to be a very worthy cause.

Game 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 it, saying, "What [The Game] is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother."

The producers of Game's TV show, Marrying the Game, gave another $2,500. Snoop Lion also reportedly pitched in after learning about Game's contribution.

Game recently donated several thousand dollars to help out with another funeral after a six-year-old girl was shot and killed in front of her home.

Pretty surprising, and cool and generous, that he and his friends in the industry are going out of his way to help people they doesn't even know, isn't it?
