"I'm giving up the Buffalo hat I wore to the GRAMMYs to help underserved kids get the educational tools they need," Pharrell explained in a statement. "Our organization, From One Hand to Another, is committed to bringing kids experiences that ignite their passions, challenge their minds and prepare them for success."
The vast hat gained internet notoriety during Williams' Grammys appearance earlier this month.

Pharrell - one of the world's most successful artists - has also revealed details of his debut solo album GIRL, which drops on March 3.
He said: "When Columbia Records presented me with the opportunity to make an album, three things came to mind. One was the sense of overwhelming honour that I felt when I realized that they were interested in partnering with me on the album that I had always dreamt of making. Two, it would have to feel festive and urgent. And three, I instantly knew it would be called G I R L. I hope you like it."
