Harrington signed off his message "with love and respect from beyond the wall."
The actor checked himself into a wellness facility in May for "personal issues." In a sweet showing of support for Harrington and his favorite charity, fans launched the fundraiser on JustGiving.com. Thanks to Harrington's generous donation the campaign was able to reach its £50,000 target, or about $63,000. He's since checked out, following reports that he was doing better.
"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."
