Bob the Builder Award: IHOP (International House of Pancakes)


"This Fat Tuesday (I feel fat most Tuesdays so how is THIS Tuesday any different...I guess a holiday of fatness is not such a bad deal), feast on free buttermilk pancakes from IHOP and help out with a great cause at the same time.

Tuesday, February 24 is National Pancake Day (which always falls on Fat Tuesday) and in celebration, IHOP restaurants across the nation will be giving away free short stacks in return for donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (

Last year they gave away more than 1.5 million pancakes and rose over $875,000. This year they're hoping to set a new record and raise $1 million.The Children's Miracle Network is an alliance of premier children’s hospitals across the country with hospitals in every state (the Andersons know about Children's Hospitals...we are going to one on Fat Tuesday. Again)

Every year over 17 million children benefit (and some are still waiting to benefit) from state-of-the-art care, life-saving research and world-class doctors. An array of companies sponsor their cause, including IHOP."

From one of those children's families, thanks IHOP! :)
