Pharrell Williams' giant Grammys hat might be famous enough to get its own agent, but the musician is auctioning it off for a better cause.

Williams announced on Twitter Thursday night (Feb. 20) that he is auctioning the meme-spawning Vivienne Westwood "Mountain" hat on eBay, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting From One Hand To Another.

FOHTA is a nonprofit established by Williams to provide tools and resources to underprivileged youth.

A couple of hours later, the Oscar-nominated artist updated his 2.8 million followers that the hat, originally priced at $200, had surpassed $10,000.

As of Friday morning, 64 people placed bids on the accessory with the highest standing offer at $10,500, and nine days left to go.
