Rappers Drake and The Game have donated thousands of dollars to a woman who lost her five children and boyfriend in a housefire. 

In an act of astounding generosity, The Game has been participating in The Robin Hood Project on Instagram -  where he vowed to donate $1million to those less fortunate before Christmas. His most recent donation caught the attention of Drake, and together they gave a total of $22,500 to Ohio woman Ana Angel, who lost her family in tragic circumstances. 

"Meet Ana Angel, a mother of 5 who lost her 5 children & her boyfriend (father of her youngest) in a house fire early Sunday morning in Tiffin, Ohio," said The Game on Instagram. "I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time.

"Ana 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 Game continued: "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........ So between me & DRAKE on behalf of@TheRobinHoodProject we split a $20,000 donation both donating 10k apiece as well as@51minds (Marrying The Game producers) choppin in with $2,500 so that Ms. Angel can afford the funeral costs for her 5 children & boyfriend as well as a point A to B vehicle."

Drake then took to Instagram, adding: "What @thedocumentary is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother."

To date, The Game has donated a total of $21,920 to 14 people. He has $978,080 to give away to those in need before Christmas. 

Drake releases his new album, Nothing Was The Same, on Monday 23 September 2013.
