The pancake chain is hoping to score some donations that go to good causes, like Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Shriners Hospitals for Children, although there is absolutely no obligation or strings attached to your free meal.
"Every pancake served on IHOP National Pancake Day has a purpose, and every penny raised goes a long way in making a meaningful, and lasting, impact on so many kids and families in our communities," IHOP President Darren Rebelez said in a news release, according to USA Today.
They are hoping to raise around $3.5 million to go toward curing diseases that affect children and families. IHOP has raised a total of $24 million for organizations dedicated to the health and well-being of young people since the first National Pancake Day in 2006.
