National Pancake Day has become a staple for IHOP and it’s about more than just free food. The pancakes are free but IHOP hopes you drop off a little cash that will go to the Children’s Miracle Network.
“Our only goal is to raise money in support of this non-profit organization that take care of saving and really trying to improve the lives of the children” said Shawn Miller with IHOP.
Shawn wanted to make it very clear that the money raised here in the Tulsa will help local kids. “It’s critical that we make sure the public knows that, it’s a way for us to give back to the community.”
Since beginning National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.
The rules are simple, just stop in any IHPOP until 10:00 p.m. tonight and a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes can be yours.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 nonprofit children's hospitals across the nation, which, in turn, use the money where it's needed the most.
When a donation is given, it stays in the community, helping local kids.
Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion since 1983, most of it $1 at a time.
These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Learn more at here.
