Williams auctioning hat for charity

Pharrell Williams' 'Mountain' hat is being auctioned off to raise money for charity.

The 40-year-old singer's Vivienne Westwood brown hat which he wore on January 26 at the Grammy Awards is up for grabs and money raised will go to From One Hand to Another.

The current bid for the item on ebay.com stands at US $10,500.00 and Pharrell was delighted with the amount of money that has been raised only 24 hours after it went online.

He wrote on Twitter: "We started my hat auction at $200 (the price I paid for it) and it's already up to over 10K? (sic)"

The auction which kicked off on February 20 will run till March 2 and the site notes the winning bidder will receive a letter of authenticity.

The hat inspired its own Twitter account named Pharrell's Hat after the star wore it at the awards ceremony where he stepped out with his wife, Helen Lasichanh.

From One Hand to Another was established by the musician and aims to give children the tools and resources to meet their unique potential.
