About IHOP RestaurantsView Site

IHOP partners with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for National Pancake Day each year. Tuesday, March 12th is National Pancake Day with the goal of raising $3million. IHOP has raised over $23 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since joining as a partner in 2006.

During this National Pancake Day, nearly 1,300 IHOP locations across the United States and Canada invite guests to enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes — and, in return, those guests are invited to make a generous donation to their local hospital. All donations made at participating IHOP restaurants support the local children’s hospital.

Beginning February 1 through National Pancake Day on March 12, participating IHOP locations will also sell Miracle Balloons for $1 and $5 each to benefit member Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All icon proceeds will help provide life-saving care, equipment and therapy programs across North America. Customers who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be used during their next dining visit.

For over 60 years, the IHOP family restaurant chain has served its world famous pancakes and a wide variety of beloved breakfast, lunch and dinner items. IHOP offers its guests an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service.

For Kids LikeEli & Shane

When brothers Eli and Shane were ejected from the off-road vehicle they were riding in, they flew nearly 35 feet. Twenty cents of every dollar provide advancement services to support physical and programmatic excellence to deliver the best possible patient outcomes including the trauma and burn care the boys received while they were in the hospital.
