IHOP Free Pancake Day is March 12th! Eat pancakes, help kids, here’s how:

Visit participating IHOP locations on March 12th and celebrate IHOP’s Free Pancake Day. You can help kids treated at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

It’s easy to celebrate IHOP Free Pancake Day! Here’s how:

  1. Visit a participating IHOP location on March 12th and donate to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in exchange for a free short stack of pancakes.
  2. Invite your friends and family to join you and share that you’re supporting your local children’s hospital on social media using #FreePancakeDay
  3. Try Kid Chef Brody’s OREO® Oh My Goodness pancake that is featured as a limited-time special on the IHOP menu through April 14, with $1 of each purchase benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (depending on location).

You might think it’s just a day to get a free short stack of delicious IHOP buttermilk pancakes, but it actually is a day that makes a BIG difference for kids treated at our hospital. Kids like, Carter Smith (pictured), our 2019 Children’s Miracle Network Champion! Carter, a spina bifida patient, knows the ropes at Le Bonheur – he’s undergone 26 surgeries and sees 10 different specialists. Carter loved sampling pancakes with our friends at IHOP.

Why you should help?

Did you know that 62 kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital every minute? That’s more than 10 million kids every year. Donations raised at IHOP on Free Pancake Day help fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.

Thanks to IHOP for supporting our hospital and to all of your for enjoying free pancakes and helping kids!
