Who doesn't love pancakes from IHOP. And who wouldn't love getting them for FREE! Today is National Pancake Day and you can get free pancakes at participating IHOP locations with a simple donation to the Children's Miracle Network! Simple and delicious!

IHOP is celebrating their 11th National Pancake Day nationwide. Patrons can get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes between 7 am and 7 pm today. All they ask is that you leave a donation of any size to the Children's Miracle Network. You can stop by the IHOP in Cedar Rapids at 2545 Edgewood Road SW. Last year alone, IHOP raised $3.5 million dollars for children's charities.

CMN is a cause near and dear to our hearts as well. CMN helps the children and families whose lives have been affected by accidents and diseases. They try and make life in the hospital a little more like life at home.

So get out to an IHOP near you today. Enjoy your free short stack and help out some great kids at the same time!
