Get FREE pancakes all day Monday, Feb. 5, at IHOP’s eighth annual National Pancake Day. All day long, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., IHOP restaurants will serve you a free short stack of the chain’s signature buttermilk pancakes in the hope you will donate what the meal would have cost, or more, to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or another local charity. Since launching the program in 2008, IHOP has raised nearly $8 million for the charity, to purchase equipment and support life-saving procedures and treatments for seriously ill or injured children. Some IHOP restaurants will also raise funds for Children’s Miracle, and hopes to bring that total to $10 million with the 2012 National Pancake Day giveaway and fund-raising program.Also, during February, participating IHOP locations are selling “Miracle Balloons” for $1 and $5 each. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a coupon good for $5 off their next visit with a $20 purchase.
