Think you’ve got a Father’s Day gift that will make your dad’s heart melt? Well, we’ve got one that might be even cheddar.

What if you could give him an edible sculpture created in his image from a 40-pound block of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese?

Well, you can.

Starting today, Kraft is auctioning off five custom-made cheese sculptures explicitly created to celebrate your old man’s cheesy greatness.

But you have to act quickly. You have just two days to place your bid to win one of the cheesy sculptures. To do so, visit before 5 p.m. CT on Tuesday, June 12.  And bid generously.

All proceeds from the Kraft Father’s Day auction will go to support Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. Even better, the funds raised will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Kraft up to $25,000.

The top five highest bidders will be contacted via email immediately following the close of the auction. At that point, they will also be asked to submit photos of their dads and contact information for shipping.

Kraft is also encouraging sons and daughters everywhere to share their photos of their amazingly cheesy dads using #CheesyIsGreat and #FamilyGreatly. Be sure to tag Kraft in your post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

A grate gift for dad that does a world of good? It’s almost too gouda to be true.
