Tomorrow is National Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants nationwide.
Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $8 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates. On February 28, 2012, guests from around the country are invited to celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP and enjoy a free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes.* In return for the free pancakes, guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals© and other designated local charities....remember when I talked about it here last year?
Well, well, well...just imagine what a difference one year can make in your life. Last year I blogged about how Mini and I would love to be there but, she was still under isolation from her bone marrow transplant and could not go outside or eat prepared foods. Hold onto your seat as I manifest, tomorrow Mini and I will be there. Not only will we be there, Mini will be interviewed live at IHOP during our local morning news broadcast! I know, I know...sigh.
...but wait, there's more...
Mini has been named CCMC Champion Child of the Year!
As such, Mini will represent her hospital at events, openings or anything else that may come up over the year.
My little girl has been on some journey. She has done and experienced enough for 10 lifetimes. I won't go into all that now...like I've done before. I'll just say, I could not be prouder.
So, get out there tomorrow...take the kids for some pancakes and leave a little donation for all the kids who can't be there because they're in the hospital or home sick...and think of Mini and how each donation is making kids stronger everyday...
If you want to watch Mini on the news tomorrow, her segment is scheduled for 7:40 a.m. on WPIX, Channel 11 in NYC. I'm not sure if you can watch live on the computer. You can find out by going to their website.
...for all the natural hair sisters out there...this is Mini's natural hair, one year after being completely bald...and Mini wanted me to shout out her cousin, Sandra, who treated her to a day at the salon for this new hair do...thanks cus.
