Drake and The Game have unveiled a new collaboration – and it's all in the name of charity.

The rappers have teamed up to donate $20,000 to an Ohio woman whose entire family was killed in a house fire Sunday.

Tiffin resident Anna Angel, 30, lost her five children and her boyfriend when their trailer home was engulfed in flames while she was working a shift at Burger King.

To help cover the cost of the funerals, Drake and The Game revealed, via joint snapshots posted on their Instagram accounts, that they've each donated $10,000 to Angel.

The photo showed Angel with her five children, whose ages ranged from 2 to 6, as well as boyfriend Tim Fresch, 25, who was the father of one of the children.

The rappers also solicited $2,500 from production company @51minds, which produces his VH1 reality show, Marrying the Game, bringing the total to $22,500.

In the caption for his Instagram post, The Game wrote: "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."

He also explained that he was chatting on the phone with Drake when he first read about the tragedy, and both agreed to make the donation on behalf of The Robin Hood Project, The Game's initiative to contribute $1,000,000 to charity.

According to media reports, on Thursday Angel's four daughters were laid to rest in a single casket in Tiffin, while her son will be buried with his father in Sandusky.
