Kit Harington made a large donation to the U.K. Royal Mencap Society charity on Wednesday, after Game of Thrones fans rallied to raise funds for the organization in support of the actor. “To those of you who set this page up in my name and to those of you who contributed and left messages, please accept my deepest and most heartfelt thank you,” the 32-year-old actor wrote along with his nearly $10,000 contribution. “This donations page lifted my heart and brought tears to my eyes, what a beautiful gift to receive…how generous of all of you.” According to Us Weekly, the charity works with people with learning disabilities. Fans started the fundraiser via JustGiving.com earlier this month, when it was revealed that Harington checked into a wellness treatment for personal issues.
