IHOP restaurant's National Pancake Day is today (Tuesday, March 4th) You can enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes—and help raise money for charity! IHOP hopes to raise more than $3 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children and other local charities this year.

More than 1,500 IHOP restaurants in the United States, including, for the first time, Canada and Puerto Rico, will be participating in the 15 hours of pancake delight on National Pancake Day, when millions of free pancakes will be served from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. In exchange for the free short stacks, customers are encouraged to leave a voluntary donation in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children and other local charities.

Beginning February 1 through National Pancake Day on March 4th, participating IHOP locations in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico will also sell “Miracle Balloons” for $1 and $5 each to benefit the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
