Do good, dine out...

IHOP has a national online contest called “Stacks for Good Acts”: Submit a 250-or-fewer-word story about a good deed you or someone you know did in 2010 and submit it at before Feb. 26. One winner will get free pancakes for a year (defined as "one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes per day for 365 days"). The winner will be announced March 1, National Pancake Day, which is IHOP's annual fundraiser benefitting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. That day, guests get a free short stack from 7 a.m.-10 p.m., and are asked to donate to the fund.

The Jason’s Deli at the corner of Woodlawn and Park roads is donating 10 percent of receipts to the 2011 Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk. Dine there on Feb. 10 and/or March 10 to contribute.
