Some of you out there might know that today is National Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday) because pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent. So, in celebration, the folks over at IHOP are giving away short stacks (three buttermilk pancakes) for free! Yep that's right, free! Well, actually you can get them for free, but the folks at IHOP would really prefer it if you made a donation instead. All the proceeds go to support the Children's Miracle Network in order to raise money for children's hospitals.
Last year they raised more than $340,000 and this year they're hoping to top $500,000. So if you'd like to take part, then head on down to IHOP, the short stacks are available at participating restaurants throughout the US from 7am - 10pm.
