West Coast rapper Game is showing the world he is much more than a hip-hop artist by revealing plans to donate $10,000 to assist with relief efforts overseas in the Philippines.
Game broke the news of his generous offering to the masses on Friday (November 15).
" know many of you might've heard about the typhoon in the Philippines by now where their death total continues to rise daily and is now roughly about 2,500 bodies found dead with an expected 100-150 more daily says their President Benigno Aquino. This hurts my heart knowing that many of those amongst the dead are little children. Every now & again there is a tragedy that strikes somewhere around the world as the previous Thailand Tsunsmi, Haiti Earthquake & the most vicious here in the states "HURRICANE KATRINA"....." (Game's Instagram)
The newest Cash Money Records signee also revealed how his fans could support the relief cause.
"It is in these times where we as people of this world get the opportunity to unite with one another & give back, help aid, lend a hand, donate or just send prayers....... Well I am one of those people, so on behalf of @therobinhoodproject & my charitable partner @DanBilzerian we are donating $10,000 to help aid in the relief efforts to restore whatever possible in such a horrific natural disaster. My heart goes out to the families & friends of those who perished for only God knows I could not deal with the loss of any of mine. If there's anyone out there who would like to donate anything.... UNICEF.org/Philippines or REDcross.org & to directly help the families go to www.worldvision.org/Haiyan now !!! I am sure they would appreciate any sum of money donated. Thanks for your help & follow @therobinhoodproject NOW as well as hashtag us at #TheRobinHoodProject to tell us about/keep up with other stories. Thank you - The Game" (Game's Instagram)
Back in September, the California rapper convinced labelmate Drake to help donate $10,000 to a woman who lost her family to a horrific fire.
Drake and The Game are teaming up to help cover funeral costs for 6 people -- including 5 young siblings -- who died in a tragic house fire in Ohio ... even though the rappers didn't know the victims. The Game got the ball rolling after learning about Anna Angel -- who was working her shift at Burger King when a fire consumed her home while her 5 young children and her boyfriend were trapped inside. There were no survivors. Game Instagram'd about the tragedy ... saying, "I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time."The Game -- who recently pledged to donate $1 million dollars to people in need as part of his Robin Hood project -- says he was on the phone with Drake when he read about the woman's loss ... and they each agreed to donate $10,000 to help Anna cover the burial costs.

Earlier this year, the former G-Unit member helped fund a slain six-year-old's funeral.
Compton native The Game already donated $10,000 to help cover funeral expenses, according to reps for the musician. Tiana and her father, 26-year-old Tyrell Ricks Jr., were among the party guests Sunday at a house in the 25000 block of Harker Lane in Moreno Valley, witnesses said. The victims and others were reportedly standing in the driveway about 9:45 p.m. when two men walked up to them, asked a question and then opened fire. (KTLA)
