IHOP gives free pancakes for a year to one good Samaritan
The national pancake chain IHOP just launched its "Stacks for Good Acts" online contest, which seeks one good Samaritan to reward with a year's supply of free pancakes. Stack seekers can submit their story (250 words or less) about a good deed that they or someone they know performed in 2010 at www.IHOPPancakeDay.com.
Good deeds rewarded...with free pancakes!
Here are the details:
According to IHOP, entries will be judged on "emotional impact, originality, and entertainment value." The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on February 25.
One grand prize entry will receive free pancakes for one year--one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes per day for 365 days*--and the winner will be announced on National Pancake Day, the company's annual pancake giveaway fundraiser to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, which takes place Tuesday, March 1.
*Perhaps the perk might be transferable? A daily short stack seems a little unhealthful, particularly on the heels of the government's urging for Americans to improve their diets.
