The popular drama and fantasy series "Game of Thrones" has seen an extremely powerful and devoted fandom, the fans are very vocal about their love for the show and everything that disappoints them. But this time the fandom is not enraged about coffee cups but rather have rallied behind one of show’s stars, Kit Harington who plays Jon Snow, raising money in support of one of his favourite charity.

Fans of the show and Harington's character, Jon Snow, have created a JustGiving account for the UK charity Royal Mencap Society and have already raised over 36,000 pounds out of the targeted 50,000 pounds, People.com reported on Saturday.

Described as a gesture of thanks to the man who has given "Game of Thrones" fans "so much", the fan-led rally aims to help donate to the organisation that works with people with learning disabilities.

The actor first endorsed Mencap in August 2017.

"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. He absolutely nailed his performance and we loved every second of screen time we had with him," the online fundraiser reads.

"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," the fundraiser described.

Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this week that Harington was seeking treatment for alcohol abuse lead on after his nearly decade-long stint on the series came to an end.
