In case you needed some extra masks for on-the-go during the pandemic, ViacomCBS says it's selling face masks with your favorite TV characters on them for charity.

Deadline, citing ViacomCBS Consumer Products, reports that all proceeds from the sale of the masks will go to charity and Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response.

Sales from shows featuring images from "SpongeBob SquarePants," "PAW Patrol," and "Blue’s Clues & You!" will go toward Save the Children, a nonprofit; while sales from other networks’ programs will go toward other groups.

The CBS online shop already has "Star Trek" face masks, which feature images of the very recognizable Starfleet insignia, as well as overhead shots of the Enterprise.

You can even wear part of the Borg on your face, like the one seen in the new CBS show "Star Trek: Picard."

Here's the description from the CBS store:

"We are Borg. Whether you know it as the Borg Cube or The Artifact, this 'Star Trek: Picard' Borg Face Mask lets you take the beautifully ominous look of the Borg Cube with you on your next essential outing."

It seems just about every company is selling face masks these days, and that may be a good thing, simply because it seems people will need to continue to wear them months into the future, if not longer.

Pam Kaufman, president of ViacomCBS Consumer Products, said:

“During this unprecedented time, we hope Nickelodeon’s beloved characters and iconic brands will provide solace and ultimately make these new circumstances more manageable.”

The ViacomCBS face masks come on the heels of Disney's face masks, which were announced last month.

People could order masks with characters from Pixel, Marvels and "Star Wars" movies. Proceeds from those sales are also going to charity.

In a statement, Edward Park, senior vice president at the Disney store and shopDisney, said they hoped these fun masks might make it easier, and maybe less scary, for kids to wear them.

“We realize this is a challenging time for families and wearing any type of mask can be daunting. Our hope is that Disney’s cloth face masks featuring some of our most beloved characters will provide comfort to the families, fans and communities that are so important to us.”

The masks could be another friendly face for kids.

The CDC is advising that people wear face masks whenever they are out in public, since it adds an extra layer of protection between you and the next person.

It should be noted that wearing a mask doesn't mean you can stop social distancing -- using both methods, as well as washing your hands often, may help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
