The ultimate hat trick: pulling almost fifteen thousand dollars out of a one-hundred eighty dollar hat all for the love of charity. The Vivienne Westwood “Mountain Hat”, which Pharrell wore to the 2014 Grammy Awards, has been the most talked about fashion statement since the meat dress of Lady Gaga. This, my friends, is the magic of “celebrity”.
The charity, From One Hand to Another is rewarded with all the proceeds (that right, all!) collected from a now famous Ebay auction for the infamous hat ending March 2nd, 2014. From One Hand To Another provides children nurturing support and encouragement through technology, art, and media, giving children a chance to explore creativity as an outlet for future success. The charity was founded in 2008 by non other than Pharrell Williams himself and has become a beacon of hope for children in his hometown of Virginia Beach, VA. A program like this is a model for children’s charities all over the nation. A refreshing and fun way to keep kids looking toward a bright and creative future.
At the writing of this article, the bidding stands at $15,100 and the auction will close on March 2nd at 5 p.m. EST. So dig deep people, and get a bit of celebrity fashion history while racking up major karma points (as well as a giant tax write-off). Let’s continue the bidding at $15,500. Going once, going twice…any takers?
