IHOP is giving a free short stack of pancakes to guests today for National Pancake Day.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. IHOP is giving guests free short stack pancakes and in return, asks guests to leave a donation to benefit the Children Miracle Network Hospital in their community. Some locations will be extending the celebration to 10 p.m.

IHOP's 12th annual National Pancake Day this year is hoping to raise $3.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals programs in the communities they serve. Hasbro Children's Hospital is one of the many hospitals being helped out by this. Last year, they raised $4 million for children's charities.

You can find an IHOP location or donate online here.  Enjoy your free pancakes and Happy National Pancake Day!
