By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Drake and The Game are combining their celebrity power for a good cause.

TMZ shares  that the rappers are teaming up to help cover over $20k in funeral costs for 6 people (5 children and 1 man) who died tragically in a house fire in Ohio.

Neither rapper knew the victims but heard about the story of Anna Angel, who was working at her fast food job when a house fire trapped her kids and boyfriend inside. The rappers donated $20k and an additional $2500 was donated by producers of "Marrying The Game" on VH1.

Drake Instragrammed a photo of Anna and her family while The Game added, "I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time."

According to the NY Daily News, the blaze happened on Sept. 15 at the family's mobile home in Tiffin, Ohio. "I cannot imagine the feeling she had at that moment & when I first read this story yesterday I just happened to be on the phone with (Drake) and told him about it so he offered to help alongside me," the rapper said, according to the NYDN.

The Game has been donating to several good causes as part of the Robin Hood project. He recently bought toys for an adorable girl named Marcia whom he met at a restaurant.
