(CBS NEWS) – Remember that outrageous hat that Pharrell Williams wore to the Grammy Awards — the one that raised eyebrows, sparked jokes and even got its own parody Twitter account?

Now you can own it. The singer/songwriter/producer is auctioning off the topper to raise money for charity.

Williams, 40, has put the Vivienne Westwood “Mountain” hat up for auction on San Jose-based eBay. Proceeds from the sale will benefit One Hand to Another, an organization he founded that helps underserved youth.

“Now is your chance to own a piece of pop culture history!” the listing description says. “Bid on Pharrell Williams’ Vivienne Westwood ‘Mountain’ hat that was one of the biggest hits of the 2014 Grammy Awards.”

He posted a link to the auction on Twitter, showing himself wearing the hat. “Hey @Arbys, you want my hat? Now’s your chance…” he wrote, referencing a tweet the fast-food chain sent about the hat on Grammys night.
