For to long Flint residents have had to read about the free pancakes at IHOP on National Pancake Day, but today will be different.

Now that IHOP has finally opened the Miller road location, in Flint Township, we can all enjoy National Pancake Day.

Pancakes With A Purpose is not only a great way to get free pancakes, but it also helps out some great charities.  The day is based around raising money for Children's Miracle Network hospitals, Shriner's Hospitals for children, and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Here's how this works, in an easy to follow, step by step plan.

  1. Head to a participating IHOP restaurant today (March 7th) between 7am and 7pm.
  2. Ask for your free shortstack of pancakes
  3. EAT
  4. Leave a donation for one of the three charities listed above.

It's as simple as that!

If you want, you could also decide to have a twerk off like the IHOP customers below.
