    Growing mustaches for kids. It’s an awkward phrase, but a great cause.

    Teachers at Helix Charter High School are growing mustaches to help foster children. Alex Smith, Helix alumnus and San Francisco 49ers quarterback, is also supporting the cause by growing a mustache of his own.

    Teachers at Helix will be growing mustaches from Nov. 16 to Dec. 18 while soliciting donations for their courage and handsomeness. All proceeds will benefit the Alex Smith Foundation and its goal of helping foster children as they transition into college and adulthood.

    The fundraiser kicks with Clean Shave Day. Participants will gather at the Riviera Supper Club In La Mesa to start the "growing season" by shaving for a clean start.

    Mustaches for Kids is a volunteer-run organization that started in Los Angeles in 1999 to do good and have fun by growing mustaches for children's charities.
