The Game and Drake to Fund Funerals for 6 Killed in Ohio Fire
(NEW YORK) — Anna Angel was working at a fast-food restaurant Sunday morning when a fire broke out in her Tiffin, Ohio home — killing her five young children, ages 6 and under, and her boyfriend.
On Tuesday, The Game, 33, posted on Instagram that he and fellow rapper Drake, 26, were stepping in to help.
“I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time,” The Game said. “[Anna] Angel was working her shift at Burger King when she was informed by her manager Pat Boes that her home had burnt down with her family inside it & no one survived.”
The rapper, birth name Jayceon Taylor, continued in his heartfelt post that he can’t “imagine the feeling” she had when first finding out.
“I just happened to be on the phone with DRAKE & told him about it so he offered to help,” he added. ”So between me & DRAKE on behalf of @TheRobinHoodProject we split a $20,000 donation both donating 10k apiece.”
Another $2,500 was added on for a total of $22,500 from The Game and friends.
The money will go toward funeral costs for the six that were killed, and a car for Angel.
The Robin Hood Project is The Game’s vow to give away $1 million of his own money by the end of this year to people in need. From $50 to $22,500, The MC is posting pics of the people and families he’s helping on Instagram.
