The Game - The Game To Help Pay For Slain Girl's Funeral

Rapper The Game is handing $10,000 (£6,670) to the family of a little girl who was shot dead at the weekend (08Sep13) as part of his mission to give away $1 million (£666,670) of his own money by Christmas (Dec13).

The rap star has launched his so-called Robin Hood Project and hopes to give away cash to the needy - and one of his first acts of generosity will benefit Tiana Ricks' relatives as they attempt to pay for her funeral costs.

The six year old was killed on Sunday (08Sep13) after two men approached her family's home in Moreno Valley, California, and opened fire. The Dreams hitmaker read about the tragedy and admits he was devastated by reports suggesting the little girl turned to her father and asked if he was Ok as she lay dying.

He tweeted, "This very sad story hit me in a place nothing ever has... Tiana did not know she was shot & kept asking was her father okay."

The Game has tracked down the family and is giving them $10,000 to help cover costs for Tiana's funeral on Saturday (14Sep13).

Tiana's mother Marquia MACklin tells Tmz.com, "Game told me that he heard about my story and was really sorry. He said that he wanted to help out and put me in touch with his financial team."

Authorities are still searching for those responsible for the shooting.
