Mark your calendars! Tuesday, February 24th is National Pancake Day at your local IHOP. From 7AM to 10PM, participating IHOP locations are giving away free buttermilk shortstacks.
That’s right – free! check to see if your local IHOP is offering this awesome deal.
All that is asked for is a small donation to be donated to the Childrens Miracle Network. "In 2006, you helped IHOP celebrate National Pancake Day by raising more than $340,000 for charity."
In 2008, you helped IHOP celebrate National Pancake Day by raising more than $875,000 for charity. In 2009, we hope that together we can top that by giving away enough free pancakes to raise $1,000,000 for Children’s Miracle Network and other local charities.

(I'm sure that some people will like to point out that this proves that there is no such thing as a free lunch: you are asked to provide a donation, of any amount, to the Children’s Miracle Network or other local charities. To be fair, if you are tight on cash, you can give a small amount now and give more later.)
So say you donated $3 for 3 cakes- a tax-deductible charitable donation = 3 buttermilk pancakes. that adds up just fine to me. I would be able to take my family to IHOP for say $15 and help out a worthy cause...
