Pharrell Williams is auctioning off his Vivienne Westwood hat that he wore to the Grammy’s on January 26th. He was also seen wearing this noticeable work of art at the NBA All Star game, Oscar Nominee Luncheon, and the 2014 BRIT Awards. There have been reports that there is another version of the hat, which was worn at the different events.

The auction was announced on Thursday, Feb 20th on Twitter. Williams, who is an artist and producer, was just nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song for “Happy’, which was featured in “Despicable ME 2.”  The 40 year old musical artist will be performing his hit ‘Happy’ at the Oscar’s on March 2, the last day his hat will be listed for auction.

The proceeds from the auction are going to his foundation to help children “by giving them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential.”

“I’m auctioning off my hat from the Grammys to benefit from One Hand to Another,” he wrote on the eBay auction.

One Hand to Another is a nonprofit organization that Pharrell founded in 2008. The organizations website states, “The Pharrell Williams Resource Centers’ (PWRC) learning programs developed for every one of the underserved youth between the ages of 7 and 20 in at risk communities throughout the country.”

The auction that is now at $10,500, started off at $200, the amount Pharrell said he paid for the now popular hat, is definitely set to raise money for the foundation.

The popularity for the hat intensified as the media called it the “mountain” hat. The hat’s appearance even got the attention of Arbys, the fast food restaurant that has a large cowboy hat as their logo. They tweeted to Pharrell during the Grammys, “Hey, Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs.”

Addressing the tweet on Thursday, Williams tweeted back, “Hey, @Arbys, you want my hat? Now’s your chance…”
