IHOP says it has raised more than $5.65 million since it started its National Pancake Day promotion. Its goal for this year is to raise $2.3 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.

"Pancake Day," also known as Shrove Tuesday, is quite popular overseas though it is widely celebrated on Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, which this year falls on March 8. IHOP decided to celebrate the day a week early.
