On Feb. 5, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This year, the restaurant chain is hoping to stack up more donations than ever before, with a goal to raise $3 million, for a total of more than $13 million in eight years with its National Pancake Day fundraising effort.
