In 10 days, 24 million dollars has been raised for charity.
So maybe it’s not 10 days in a row.
“Since launching in 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has become a pop-culture phenomenon with millions of guests and communities helping IHOP and its franchisees raise $24 million to-date for youth health and wellness organizations. All of the money raised on IHOP National Pancake Day stays local and directly helps children in need.”
The pancake house offers an otherwise free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes and only ask for a monetary donation (of your choosing). This year they have set the bar high. Partnering with 3 charities – Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Shriners Hospitals for Children – their goal of raising $3.5 million goes towards finding cures and eradicating life-threatening diseases affecting children and families everywhere.
Darren Rebelez, President, IHOP Restaurants quotes, “Year after year, we look forward to celebrating with our guests and fans, and are amazed by their generosity. Every pancake served on IHOP National Pancake Day has a purpose, and every penny raised goes a long way in making a meaningful, and lasting, impact on so many kids and families in our communities.”
Due to the popularity of today’s event, IHOP anticipates serving a record-breaking five million pancakes to hungry and hopefully philanthropic diners.
