Yesterday, March 4th, an event was held in Western countries to celebrate "Mardi Gras", the final day of the "Carnival". "Mardi Gras" is a French word for "Fat Tuesday". It is also known as " Pancake Day " because it has long been a custom to eat pancakes.

To celebrate "Pancake Day," IHOP, a pancake restaurant in the United States, offered a stylish service of serving buttermilk and pancakes to customers for free. The US media LA Times reports .

According to the media, IHOP will serve pancakes for free on Pancake Day every year since 2006 and hold a charity event to solicit donations. The money donated by customers will be sent to children's hospitals and charities.

In response to this event, the restaurant's official Facebook page says, "I'll definitely go eat!", "The worst person who has a job on this day!", "I wish I had a French toast day ..." In addition to comments from users who seemed to be unable to suppress their excitement, there were many voices calling for donations, such as "Don't forget to donate to children!"

IHOP uses pancakes not just as sweets, but as a “tool” for charity. Even in Japan, where the pancake boom is booming, such heartwarming efforts may increase in the future.
