It’s the accessory on everyone’s lips this award season. And made more famous by Pharrell than this OG. Yet, the singer/producer is  known more for starting fires than putting them out, ahem, remember the “happy” blaze he caused at the stiffest, staunchest award show? Here’s a reminder. But this time he’s tipping the hat towards an even better cause. The Vivienne Westwood hat has been auctioned off on ebay with funds going towards Pharrell’s From One Hand to Another non-profit that supports Pharrell Williams Resource Center, a community resource center for underprivileged youth ranging from age 7 to 20 in his hometown of Virginia Beach.

The resource center aims to set up programs that will teach science, technology, engineering, arts, math and motivation to at risk kids. The center also offers life coaches and tutoring and motivation lessons to children.

The infamous hat sold for $44,100.00 after only 11 days on ebay. The first two days of bidding garnered $15,000. As a result 250 lucky kids will be traipsing off to one of 9 summer innovation camps Pharrell has under his From One Hand to Another non-profit.

I think the only thing to top this is Miley’s foam finger…no, that would just be a very, very bad idea. Ugghhh.
