Support kids, get free pancakes Tuesday from IHOP

You can support sick children and get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes on Tuesday.

IHOP's National Pancake Day event benefits the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Shriners Hospital for Children in the Dallas area.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, guests are invited to make a donation to the two children's charities

Last year, pancake lovers donated nearly $3 million and IHOP served nearly 4.2 million free pancakes.

Participating locations include: Plano Parkway in Plano, Highway 20 in Arlington, Burleson Boulevard in Burleson, Loop 820 in Fort Worth and Highway 77 in Waxahachie.
