On Tuesday, March 3, IHOP guests can flip for free flapjacks. The chain is celebrating a "Decade of Giving" by participating in their tenth annual National Pancake Day. Guests can receive a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.

In return for the free pancakes, guests are encouraged to leave a donation for the Children's Miracle Network Hospital or other local charities. IHOP began celebrating National Pancake Day in 2006, and since then the restaurant chain has raised almost $16 million to support charities in local communities, according to IHOP's website.

The IHOP located on University Boulevard will be giving the donations it receives on Tuesday to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

There is a limit of one free short stack, which is three pancakes, per guest. On its website, IHOP stated that its national goal for this year's National Pancake Day is $3.5 million.
