Lee County, GA (WALB) -   It's National Pancake Day, and many South Georgians  got a free short stack and donated to a children's charity.

The syrup was flowing at the I-HOP in Lee County as order after order of pancakes came out of the kitchen.

I-HOP partners with Children's Miracle Network to raise money for children's hospitals by accepting donations in exchange for three buttermilk pancakes.

Margaret DeMott of Leesburg has lost children and knows first hand the great work Children's Miracle Network does.

"I'm the mother of five children and I just have the two boys living, my girls, back then they didn't know what to do for them so they were nine months, babies, they came, they said something was wrong with their stomachs, back then, the 50's they didn't do anything about it, they didn't know to do anything about it," said DeMott.

She treated her son to breakfast and made a nice donation. Restaurant managers say they've had a great crowd Tuesday. The offer runs through 10:00 tonight.
