On Sunday, tragedy hit a family in Ohio. While Anna Angel was working her shift at Burger King, a fire took the lives of her boyfriend and five young children who were trapped in their mobile home.

Although no one can say or do anything to alleviate the young woman’s grief or pain, rappers Drake and The Game are generously donating money to cover the costs of the funeral.

On his Instagram account, The Game explained that he and Drake were on the phone when he first read of the travesty.

“I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time. I cannot imagine the feeling she had at that moment & when I 1st read this story yesterday I just happened to be on the phone with DRAKE @champagnepapi & told him about it so he offered to help alongside me,” he wrote.

Drake later commented on The Game’s post, writing "What [The Game] is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother."

The Game and Drake have each donated $10,000. With the addition of The Game’s TV Show producers giving $2,500, Anna Angel has been gifted $22,500 to properly bury her family.

The Game recently donated $10,000 to help with the funeral of a 6-year-old girl shot and killed in front of her home. Additionally, he pledged $1 million to The Robin Hood Project.
