The Game is giving $10,000 to the family of slain 6-year-old Tiana Ricks, who was shot in Moreno Valley last weekend.
The rapper, currently in Australia, heard about the news and immediately took action. He spread the word through social media of the tragic shooting, saying "this very sad story hit me in a place nothing ever has." The Game posted this photo with a heartbreaking caption about the girl's passing.
Ricks' funeral is reportedly this Saturday.
While Ricks' mother says she's grateful the rapper stepped in, the $10,000 will only cover half of her daughter's funeral costs, according to TMZ.
The rapper's random act of kindness is part of The Robin Hood Project, a charitable pledge he's taken to give away $1 million before Christmas. On Instagram, he explained plans to hand out his sum to people he meets around the world.
