The cast of Game of Thrones recently wrapped production on filming the eighth and final season of the series, and now they are lending their time to help with fundraising efforts for children in need.
Earlier this year, Royal Mail released a series of stunning Game of Thrones inspired postage stamps featuring the cast. Now, Royal Mail is teaming up with HBO to help support their new charity partner, Action for Children.
In order to help raise money, Game of Thrones stars Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) are autographing enlarged versions of their Royal Mail stamps to be auctioned off through Action for Children’s eBay page from the June 28th until July 8, 2018. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Action for Children.

According to HBO’s press release, Action for Children helps disadvantaged children across the UK through fostering or adoption, by intervening early to stop neglect and abuse, by influencing policy, and by making life better for disabled children. With over 600 services the charity improves the lives of 370,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers every year.
Game of Thrones’ final season is sure to be the most epic yet. In addition to the eighth and final season, HBO recently announced that one of the potential Game of Thrones spinoff series received a pilot order from the network giving fans comfort that, though the original series might be coming to an end, there is still more story to be told once the final chapter of the HBO series airs.
The epic conclusion of the Game of Thrones series is expected to air sometime in 2019. No formal premiere date has yet been announced.
