You'll flip for this freebie: Chow down on free pancakes at IHOP Free Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 12.
Stop in at participating restaurants from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (until 10 p.m. in some locations) to get a free short stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes. No purchase or coupon is necessary. The offer is one per customer.
Restaurants are giving away the free eats to encourage donations to the nonprofit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriner's Hospitals for Children and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Contributions help critically ill children get treatment and directly support hospitals in each community, according to a news release.
Consider making an additional donation of $5 or more and IHOP will give you a $5-off coupon good on your next meal.
This year's fundraising goal is $4 million. The promotion, in its 14th year, has raised $35 million for hospitals, according to a news release.
During the event, IHOP says it plans to serve more than 4 million pancakes, which would make a stack almost 12 miles high. That's a tall order!
