These pancakes come with a purpose. IHOP hopes customers will make a donation to help children battling critical illnesses.
In return for the FREE short stack - that usually costs around $4.79 - IHOP hopes you'll make a donation to one these charities.
Every stack served helps them reach their goal of raising $3.5 million for children.
Since National Pancake Day began in 2006, IHOP and guests have raised more than $24 million for charity.
DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK! National Pancake Day® is 3/7/17. 1 Free Short Stack. Dine-in. Participation & hours varies https://t.co/U6W5sUR8wR— IHOP (@IHOP) March 7, 2017
