Nothing is better than warm, delicious pancakes.  Except when they are free!  Today is National Pancake Day at The International House of Pancakes.

Today is National Pancake Day at all U.S. IHOPS.  The nationwide chain will offer a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Shriners Hospitals for Children and other local charities.

Anyone who comes in will get a free stack of pancakes but are encouraged to make a voluntary donation to the foundation.

Since the launch of the National Pancake Day campaign in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $24 million and given away more than 14 million pancakes to support charities in the communities in which it operates.

This year IHOP has set a goal of $3.5 million.

Customers also can purchase a certificate that will be placed on their local restaurant's wall or by making a donation on their check.  You can also donate online at www.ihoppancakeday.com.

The free pancakes will be served at more than 1,500 locations nationwide, from 7 a.m to 10 p.m. today, March 7, 2017.

Yummy!  Delicious buttermilk pancakes and doing a great thing for your community.
