ST. CLOUD - You can go to a local Perkins restaurant today (September 24th)  and get a free short stack of pancakes.

In exchange, the restaurant hopes you'll consider making a donation to charity as part of Give Kids The World Pancake Day.

Give Kids The World is a nonprofit Florida 70-acre resort that gives free vacations to kids with life-threatening illnesses.

Both St. Cloud locations (Downtown, West St. Cloud), along with the Sauk Rapids (1417 2nd Street North) and Sartell (2291 Connecticut Avenue South) restaurants, are participating in the promotion today.

For more on the nonprofit, you can visit their website.
