It's National Pancake Day and that means that you can get yourself some free pancakes.  And as a bonus, you can also help out some charities.

Every year, IHOP gives away a free short stack of pancakes to anyone who goes into one of their restaurants between 7am and 7pm.  IHOP does ask if you'd like to donate to a charity since the pancakes are free.

IHOP's goal is to raise $5 million for local children’s hospitals and health organizations.  Since IHOP started to give away free pancakes on National Pancake Day, they have raised over $30 million for charity.
