March 3rd is National Pancake Day, and IHOP is celebrating by giving away one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes to each of their customers.

This will be the 10th year Ihop gives away free pancakes, and for a good cause. Ihop will be encouraging guests to make a minimum $5 donation towards their local Children’s Miracle Networking Hospitals. Ihop's goal is to raise $3.5 million for the charity this year. Over the past 10 years, Ihop has raised approximately $16 million from this event.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a not-for-profit organization, which strives to save children’s lives through raising funds and awareness.
