Non-profit organisation International Rescue Committee teamed up with HBO and the cast of Game of Thrones to bring attention to the Syrian refugee crisis.

In a new campaign video, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and more ask viewers to donate and help 16 million refugees displaced worldwide. Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Greece and Serbia are some of the affected nations, where refugees need help to escape war, famine and destruction.

You can choose to make direct donations to the IRC, or enter a contest via Omaze, which offers the winner the chance to join the Game of Thrones cast at the Season 6 premiere. The donations you make for your entries will benefit the IRC and, depending on how much you donate, will earn you other official merchandise from the HBO series.

"What would you do to protect your life, your family, your future? You can help," the cast pleads in the video. "Rescue has no boundaries. Please donate now."
