  • Self-report through our GOOGLE FORM to track your donation to your specialty. You will also be entered into our WEEKLY DRAW* (if you donated within the last year, please note that in the comments box. You are eligible for the first week’s draw.)

Note: Same process for family members or friends.



  • We encourage GROUP DONATIONS. If you’ve donated before, grab a few who haven’t and book a group appointment at your local CBS location.
  • CBS also offers large blocks of bookings, say if you wanted to pick a day to donate as an entire program.
