IHOP, the International House of Pancakes has some big celebrating coming up for a really good cause.

You see, this Tuesday, March 12 is National Pancake Day and IHOP is celebrating this occasion by designating it IHOP Free Pancake Day. On this day, you can visit any IHOP restaurant and get a free short stack of their Original Buttermilk Pancakes. Sold, right?

Then if you'd like to you can make a donation that will help kids that are fighting critical illnesses. Every stack of pancakes that will be served on IHOP Free Pancake Day on Tuesday will help the restaurant flip it forward for kids in need and benefit the Children's Miracle Network, Shriners Hospitals, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

So you get to enjoy some great food, and then donate to a great cause. It's always good when everybody wins.

Get more information on this special day this coming Tuesday here from the IHOP website.
