ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks filled up the Albany IHOP restaurant on National Pancake Day.

The restaurant celebrated in a special way.

IHOP is offering each guest one free short stack of pancakes.

In return, the restaurant asks that you leave a little something for its charitable partners.

The money that's donated at this location will go towards Children's Miracle Network at Phoebe.

Last year, the restaurant raised around $3500 for the area children's hospital.

This year, the hope to raise around $5000.

IHOP has been celebrating National Pancake Day since 2006.

Since then, guests nationwide have donated more than $24 million for charity.

"One of the coolest things about National Pancake Day is a lot of people are intimated, I can't make an impact, I don't have enough to give or to support this cause. But it is such a simple way, come in a eat some pancakes for a purpose, leave a small donation and together, we're making an impact," said Becca Miller, Children's Miracle Network Director at Phoebe.
