The fans launched the fundraiser to support Harington's charity after the actor went into rehab

Jon Snow may know nothing but Kit Harington knows he has the best fans.

After the final season of Game of Thrones, the actor had checked himself into rehab due to personal health issues.

GoT fans decided to lend their support to Harrington by donating to the Royal Mencap Society, a learning disability charity that he has endorsed in recent years.

"Kit Harington has given so much to the fans of Game of Thrones over the past decade playing the King in the North, Jon Snow,” reads the fundraiser description. “He absolutely nailed his performance and we loved every second of screentime we had with him.”

“This fundraiser is here to show Kit that we’re incredibly thankful to him for the sheer amount of love and skill he put into Jon Snow for us to enjoy... To show our gratitude, /r/Freefolk and other fans want to contribute to the charity Mencap, which Kit has been supporting for several years. Mencap supports people with learning disabilities to live independent and fulfilling lives."

Kit Harington found out about this notion and decided to give back to his fans, donating £7728.75 - which is $9810.48 - to the fundraiser and making their collective amount to $63,000.

He attached a heartfelt note with the donation, thanking the people who created the fundraiser and those who donated.

"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,” he wrote.

“This donations page lifted my heart and brought tears to my eyes, what a beautiful gift to receive…how generous of all of you."
