Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.

On February 5th, guests from around the country are invited to celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP and enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.

For every short stack served on National Pancake Day, which happens to be February 28 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals programs at Mcleod Children's Hospital. IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year.
