The only thing better than having a hot stack of pancakes is knowing that eating those fantastic flap jacks is for a good cause.
Today is National Pancake day and IHOP is offering a free short stack of their signature buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. In return, diners will be asked to leave a voluntary donation to support the Childrenâ??s Miracle Network Hospitals programs at Mercy Children's Hospital.
IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to more than $13 million.
IHOP served four million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2012 and pancake lovers donated more than $3 million to childrenâ??s charities.
According to IHOP, all of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day 2012 would create a stack nearly 16 miles high.
