World-renowned guitarist Zakk Wylde and his wife, Barbaranne, work tirelessly every year to raise as much money as they can for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help the fight against pediatric cancer.

Members of our team recently had the honor to attend the seventh annual St. Jude Gala in Saratoga Springs, New York, with Barbaranne. Together, we raised more than $35,000.

Our donation breakdown includes individual donations from Barbaranne and members of the Death Wish team, a Death Wish Coffee Co. company donation, a silent auction bid for a custom-made Death Wish Coffee table made by Clyde Creations, and a live auction for an Ozzy Osbourne-signed guitar. 

This is our third year working with Zakk Wylde and our amazing community to raise money for St. Jude. Last year, our community raised $30,000 for St. Jude through a rare mug sale, and in 2017, our community raised $20,000. 

We're so thankful to work with Barbaranne and Zakk to help raise money for such a great cause through our Valhalla Java artisan blend. Valhalla Java was created specifically for Zakk Wylde and to give you the caffeine boost you need, but it's so much more than a coffee blend. 

For us, it’s about creating partnerships and building an ever-growing community that supports St. Jude. Together, this community can help defeat childhood cancer for good.

Thank you, Zakk and Barbaranne, for working with us to support St. Jude!
