If you're a follower of the cult of brunch like, then you might get pancakes on Sundays at the holiest of sites: the local International House of Pancakes. Soon, we can chow down on free IHOP pancakes in Canada. On Tuesday, February 25 for just a twelve-hour window, devoted breakfast-lovers in Canada can get a free, syrupy stack of pancakes each, all for a good cause. 

Here's how it works: simply enter any participating IHOP restaurant on Tuesday, February 25 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Order one short stack of buttermilk pancakes, completely free of charge. Note that a short stack includes three pancakes. And finally, when you're done, consider donating to some kids in need.

Every year, the celebration doubles as a fundraising opportunity for guests to donate to charities like the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Donations are voluntary, but pancakes taste better when you're eating them for the sake of charity.

The restaurant's name rings true because they really are international.

With almost 1,700 restaurants operating in exotic locations like Guatemala, Saudi Arabia, and now Toronto, they might consider renaming themselves the International Empire of Pancakes.

Their tasty buttermilk pancakes are free on National Pancake Day, but the restaurant has a bunch of other, more exotic flavours to choose from.

From New York Cheesecake and Double Blueberry to Cupcake and Tutti Fruiti, it's hard to pick just one decadent flavour.

Plus, the breakfast chain has food that isn't made of pancakes like burgers, waffles and eggs.

In this writer's humble opinion, those non-pancake menu items are for heretics.

Few things in life are as good as free pancakes, so treat yourself to a little short stack. After all, it's for a good cause.
