Did you wake up this morning with a hankering for pancakes?

No purchase is needed to participate in this offer, however IHOP does suggest diners donate to a charitable partner in return. The contributions made on National Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Since its start in 2006, National Pancake Day has generated more than $24 million for charity. This year, IHOP hopes to raise $3.5 million for children battling life-threatening illnesses.

All of the money raised on IHOP National Pancake Day is donated directly to local children in need.

If carbohydrates are off-the-menu, and you’re looking for another way to help, IHOP customers can purchase a “Wall Icon” to pledge their support. Just talk with the cashier.

“Year after year, we look forward to celebrating with our guests,” said Darren Rebelez, President of IHOP Restaurans said. “Every penny raised goes a long way in making a meaningful and lasting impact on so many kids and families in our communities.”

Check your local IHOP for the exact hours for National Pancake Day, as some restaurants will extend the offer of a “free short stack” through 10pm.
