#bNice: Today is Free Pancake Day For A Great Cause!

Eat some pancakes, make a difference! Today is FREE Pancake day at IHOP. You can take advantage of all of the deliciousness from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Some location hours may vary, so you may want to call ahead to double check the hours at your IHOP locations.)

It's been happening for 13 years now--and goes beyond getting a delicious short stack of original buttermilk pancakes for free. They just hope you'll make a donation while you're enjoying your pancakes because it is IHOP's way of raising money for local children's hospitals and other health organizations like Children's Miracle Network hospitals (Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital), Shriners Hospitals for Children and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

To date, the initiative has raised almost $30 million. What a great way to #bNice!
