Stop by your local IHOP Tuesday before 10 pm and you can get a free shortstack. And while you're there, give what you can to help some courageous kids.

IHOP has partnered up with Children's Miracle Network since 2006 for National Pancake Day. Over nearly a decade, they've raised $16 million for CMN hospitals and other local charities. This year, they aim to raise $3.5 million. Visitors don't have to pay for the free shortstack, but anything they can give is very much appreciated.

You can find out more at IHOP's website. Just make sure you don't get syrup on your keyboard or touchscreen.
