It's National Pancake Day today, so celebrate! On Tuesday, February 28, 2012, IHOP is giving away free pancakes in their restaurants in hopes that you'll donate money to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Although IHOP is only giving away one short stack of pancakes, many pancake lovers could probably eat more. How many pancakes can you eat in one sitting?

IHOP hopes to raise $2,700,000 for National Pancake Day 2012. Last year, IHOP served 4,000,000 free pancakes with donations reaching over $2,500,000 that went to children’s charities! Their original fundraising goal was $2,300,000.

According to IHOP, this is the seventh consecutive year IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.
