Some of the biggest names in rap, Drake and The Game, are teaming up to help finance the funerals of six people who died tragically this week after a house fire ripped through a Tiffin mobile home, killing five young child and a man.

TMZ reports that The Game got the ball rolling after hearing about Ana Angel, the mother who lost her five children and boyfriend to the fire while she was working a shift at a local Burger King.

The rapper was on the phone with his buddy Drake when he read about the incident, and the two instantly agreed to each donate $10,000 to help cover funeral costs.

"I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time," The Game later posted on Instagram.

In addition to the $20K coming from the two artists, the producers of Game's TV series Marrying the Game contributed $2,500.

Here's a photo of Angel and her family, courtesy of Instagram.
