Visit an IHOP today and receive a free short stack of their Original Buttermilk Pancakes.

The value of a short stack is about $5, but today you'll get it for free. IHOP hopes you'll make a donation to one of the charities they support in return.

IHOP has partnered with the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Shriners Hospital For Children. Their goal is to raise $3.5 million for children in need.

IHOP has raised more than $24 million for charity since they began National Pancake Day in 2006. Imagine if everyone who walks through that door today donates the normal price of the pancakes or more!
