& # 39; With love from behind the wall & # 39 ;: Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington donates $ 10k to a fan fundraiser for Mencap, praising their generosity about wellness stint
Game Of Thrones star Kit Harington has amazed fans by donating nearly $ 10,000 to an online fundraiser.
The actor, 32, made the surprising promise to a JustGiving organization to raise money for the Mencap charity, which supports people with learning disabilities.
The fundraising campaign was because fans were determined to support Kit after it was revealed that he had checked in a wellness center in Connecticut last month for the final of Game Of Thrones for & # 39; stress and alcohol & # 39 ;.

Kit & # 39; s donation came a few weeks after the fundraiser was first set up by a star fan who wanted to raise £ 50,000 for Mencap.
The message read: & # 39; Kit Harington has given Game of Thrones fans so much over the past ten years to play the King in the North, Jon Snow. He definitely healed his performance and we enjoyed every second of the screen time we had with him.
& # 39; This fundraiser is here to show Kit that we are incredibly grateful to him for the tremendous amount of love and skills he has put into Jon Snow to enjoy. & # 39;

And while fans expressed support with many donations, Kit helped the fundraiser reach its goal with a donation of £ 6,183.00 as well as £ 1545.75 Gift Aid.
This corresponded to £ 7728.75, or about $ 9810.48, and was posted with the message: & # 39; With love and respect from behind the wall. & # 39;
Kit then shared a longer message of thanks in a message on the Mencap website: & # 39; Those who set up this page in my name and to those of you who contributed and left messages, accept my deepest and sincere thank you .
& # 39; This donation page lifted my heart and brought tears to my eyes, what a wonderful gift to receive … how generous of you all.
& # 39; Mencap is really a great charity and the money given here goes to the most incredible cause. & # 39;

Kit & # 39; s friendly gesture came after his recent stint in a Connecticut wellness retreat last month, as the star checked in weeks before the final of Game Of Thrones on May 19.
The private Swiss facility, which costs more than $ 120,000 a month, teaches its customers how to deal with stress and negative emotions.
His publicist said: & # 39; Kit has decided to use this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time in a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues. & # 39;
At the time, a source revealed that Kit in the factory & # 39; mainly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol & # 39; used to be.
The source added: & # 39; His wife Rose is exceptionally supportive. Everyone close to him really wanted him to get some rest. At the moment he just needs peace and quiet. & # 39;
