GLENDALE, Calif., Jan. 21, 2016  — On March 8, 2016, pancake lovers nationwide will once again flock to their local IHOP® restaurant to enjoy one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes in celebration of the brand’s annual National Pancake Day®. Now in its 11th year, IHOP restaurants will give away millions of free pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and ask guests to leave behind a voluntary donation for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Shriners Hospital for Children and other local charities.

In what has become a cultural phenomenon, over the last 10 years, National Pancake Day has raised $20 million for meaningful local charities.  Last year alone, IHOP restaurants served 6.6 million free pancakes—which would have created a stack nearly 19 miles high—and raised $3.5 million for children’s charities.

In 2016, IHOP aims to raise another $3.5 million. All donations collected will remain in the local communities where they are raised and will be used to fund life-saving equipment, research, community outreach events, educational tools, and much more.

This year, in keeping with the focus on bringing neighbors together to help the community, local members of Kiwanis International and its affiliated clubs, including Key Club and Circle K, will join volunteers from the charities to help spread the message in the restaurants that every donation matters.

National Pancake Day has extended its influence beyond U.S. borders to countries such as Mexico, Canadaand the Philippines. For the third consecutive year, IHOP restaurants in Canada will participate in the fundraiser by supporting Children’s Miracle Network. Additionally, IHOP locations in Mexico will once again raise money forAsociación Mexicana de Ayuda a Niños con Cáncer (AMANC). Funds raised by IHOP restaurants in the Philippines will benefit The Kythe Foundation.

“Every pancake we give away has a purpose on National Pancake Day. Through the generosity of our guests and the hard work and commitment of our franchisees and their team members, we will help fund life-saving treatment and care for children in need,” said Darren Rebelez, President, International House of Pancakes, LLC. “On behalf of everyone in the IHOP family, we are so grateful to our guests who have turned this into such an incredible event that truly makes a difference in the lives of these kids.”

Prior to National Pancake Day, participating IHOP restaurants supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals will also sell “Miracle Balloons” for $1 and $5. The balloons will be available for purchase beginning February 1 through March 8. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 discount coupon that can be used during their next visit to IHOP. Restaurant locations that are supporting Shriners Hospitals for Children and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will offer similar programs.

    The ICO resolution for centralized business to adopt blockchain applied sciences.
    Qualitative cryptocurrency liquidity is important for all skilled market members and brokerage corporations.
    Cryptocurrencies are used for getting the tokens issued by
    ICO. ICO coins” are basically digital coupons, tokens issued on an indelible distributed ledger, or blockchain, of the kind that underpins bitcoin, a crypto-foreign money.
    In contrast to many corporations which can be
    launching an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), B2BX has an already working product,
    which incorporates basic performance and connectors to five cryptocurrency exchanges
    along with 12 institutional clients.

    In June 2017, the whole funds raised by ICOs exceeded the amount that blockchain startups had raised from venture capital corporations for the 12 months preceding it.
    A number of companies are trying into ICOs, however undoubtedly, it
    is easy to conclude that this phenomenal development
    has left many gaps which have but to be fulfilled. With business
    management and buyer liaison experience underneath
    her belt, Deirdre will join new “actual-life” firms to
    the ecosystem. He believes in a future whereby firms find it extra environment friendly to boost
    capital by way of ICOs than by promoting inventory, and thinks many existing firms might concern ICOs to
    purchase back shares.

    A real-utility token is going to be an asset class of its personal, and can tap into the
    established financial market, but as of but there is no system or credible
    player. DigitalX is a Blockchain Know-how Firm primarily based out of Perth and New York.
    NTVP – Nippon Know-how Venture Partners is without
    doubt one of the leading Japanese enterprise capital firms specialised in investments for top-tech businesses.
    “Crypto may be very new, ICOs are new – at the least let’s present an educational store if you wish to go in and find out about these, and use your tZERO tokens to do this,” mentioned tZERO president Joseph Cammarata.

    We may also help you buy bitcoins , select a bitcoin pockets
    You too can read the latest information , or engage with the community on our Bitcoin Forum Please remember that
    it is a industrial web site that lists wallets, exchanges and
    other bitcoin related corporations. Opporty facilitates enterprise
    activities in the course of the launch phase, when new firms are usually not yet established out
    there and have not earned a repute. ICOs do not supply fairness of their enterprise
    to contributors — it is a definite advantage for
    founding groups.

    Richard is an experienced Blockchain Investor
    and is an energetic ICO Advisor. Opporty promises to break the barriers that prevent
    small businesses from conducting operations and a brand new
    market with essentially the most favorable conditions
    for companies. That’s as a result of Ethereum is greater than a cryptocurrency, it is a
    platform for smart contracts that makes ICOs simpler
    to do (although, theoretically, you possibly can have a token sale on a unique platform;
    for instance, Ethereum itself had a Bitcoin-based token sale in 2014,
    raising $18 million).

    He thinks all stock securities will ultimately turn out to be tokens, trading on the distributed-ledger blockchain technology that underpins cryptoassets like bitcoin. The
    corporate introduced a number of key factors concerning the
    performance of the B2BX utility-token: – Since January 2018, B2BX platform commission can solely be paid in tokens.
    By way of regulation, native monetary establishments are actually instructed to dam
    SME’s from receiving funds from International or individual investors, making it
    powerful to realize their true enterprise potential.

    Within the personal ICO cupboard, you may be asked to create a personal key for opening your personal Ethereum blockchain Wallet.
    We help launch tokens supported by actual-world, sustainable business options.
    We’ll issue tokens as a method to buy subsequent-generation mining
    boards. So ICOs will be cash on top of cash funded by the switch of other cryptos to accounts in the hunt for what’s next.
    It would raise the money by means of a private placement for accredited traders, and
    the token will trade on the corporate’s personal platform.

    Bringing knowledge and crypto science into the development of the Crowdholding
    platform. Particularly, the tZERO token holders at the moment are being supplied the flexibility to
    purchase blockchain-enabled digital find receipts , together
    with newly revealed robo-advising providers, online retail brokerage services,
    insurance merchandise and education companies dispersed
    in an app retailer-like surroundings. FundCru goals to make use of
    its business mannequin and blockchain expertise to provide fundraisers with a wealth of extra revenue sources, retailers with considerably improved outreach and advertising, and supporters with more ways to help their causes.

    The US Securities and Alternate Commission (SEC) has taken motion against
    the fourth Preliminary Coin Providing (ICO) in the past 4 months, successfully
    signaling the end of an era on the cryptocurrency market the place shady ICOs have
    dominated this 12 months’s news cycle. Again in July , the US Securities and Trade Fee (SEC) indicated that it might intervene and regulate ICOs, fearing they have been abused to scam users.
    PlusCoin shall be listed in CoinRoom, a cryptocurrency alternate
    market launched by Metaps Plus.

    Gladius is a prime example of a company making
    an attempt to capitalize off the merging of two
    technologies, p2p nodes powered by tokens, and trade commonplace DDoS safety methods.
    This ICO will mix plenty of emergent technologies that work in synergy to maximise the profits of enormous-scale cryptomining.
    Chinese language self-driving tech is 2 years behind the US, however its
    corporations will later no less than co-lead in autonomous automobiles, along
    with optics and “Web AI,” enterprise built across the amassing of information.
