Have you signed up to support your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital through IHOP’s National Pancake Day? The deadline to register is just around the corner!
Members throughout the U.S. and Canada can register now through January 31 to be a volunteer on IHOP’s National Pancake Day, March 8. On that day, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., restaurant guests can enjoy a free short stack of pancakes in exchange for a suggested donation to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, a preferred charity of Kiwanis International.
Over the past 10 years, National Pancake Day has raised almost US$20 million for CMNH and other local charities. For the Kiwanis family, it’s a chance to fulfill our mission to serve children—and to be a voice on behalf of your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Members sign up in shifts and will receive a training video and talking points. This is an easy way to give back to your local hospital by volunteering just a few hours of your time.
As one Miracle Child who beat leukemia says: “I think if everybody knew that the free pancakes they were enjoying could help kids in need, people would give generously.”
So help spread the word…and raise funds! Let’s join IHOP and CMNH to put a purpose behind the pancakes. Bring up National Pancake Day at your next club meeting and recruit a team to volunteer. Designate a chairman to sign up your club members on the registration page.
