Pancakes: They’re good for breakfast. Or lunch. Or even dinner.

And this week, you can get them for free at your local Perkins.

To celebrate Give Kids the World Pancake Day on Thursday, Sept. 28, participating restaurants will give you a free short stack of pancakes.

Why the Free Pancakes? Why Not?!

What’s the catch? It’s for a good cause.

Perkins asks that guests consider making a donation to Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit that invites kids with serious illnesses and their families to enjoy cost-free, weeklong vacations at its resort in central Florida.

Funds raised during Thursday’s event will go toward operations of the resort’s Gingerbread House, a restaurant and bakery that serves Give Kids The World guests.

A short stack typically costs $6.49 — something to consider if you take advantage of the freebie.

Do You Go to Perkins Often?

While you’re there, you might want to sign up for My Perkins, the restaurant’s rewards program, which offers a 20% off coupon for joining.

Free pancakes now, discounted pancakes later? Sounds good to me.
