Need a reason to celebrate National Pancake Day? IHOP can help.

On Tuesday, the restaurant that specializes in pancakes is giving customers a free short stack, which is three of its original buttermilk pancakes. In lieu of the normal $4.79 price, IHOP is seeking charitable donations.

Proceeds will go toward children's hospitals and other health organizations, including Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Since IHOP started National Pancake Day in 2006, nearly $30 million has been raised toward the restaurant's cause, according to the restaurant's website.

The deal is good from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at participating restaurants, so it's best to call your nearest location to make sure they're offering the promotion.

Dan Hatch, Kennewick IHOP general manager, shares details about the restaurant's participation in the 12th annual event where guests receive a free short stack of pancakes.
