Free Pancakes at IHOP!
Tuesday, February 24th between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., every IHOP in the country will serve a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.
In turn, they ask that you make a donation - any size donation - to IHOP’s national charity partner, Children’s Miracle Network, which helps improve the lives of children at 170 hospitals nationwide. One hundred percent of the funds raised locally will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in your area.
The retail value of a short stack is about $4.79.
About National Pancake Day
Known also as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, National Pancake Day dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent. Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products…hence the name Pancake Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday.
Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly two million dollars to support charities in the communities in which it operates.
With your help, we hope to raise $1,000,000 for Children’s Miracle Network in 2009!
Go get your free pancakes and make a nice big donation! do it for the CHILDREN!!
