“Game of Thrones” fans have rallied behind one of the show’s stars, this time raising money for Kit Harington‘s campaign in support of one of his favourite charities. 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.Also Read - House Of The Dragon Teaser Out: Game of Thrones Spin-Off Is All About Fire, Dragons, Blood
