Hats Off to Kassie DePaiva!

by at . Comments

All My Children isn't the only place you can find Kassie DePaiva. She also hosts the PBS show Crochet Today.

Moreover, this actress is a also designer.

After learning the craft of crochet, DePaiba began to make hats as gifts for her fellow One Life To Live cast mates, until the show’s costume designer suggested she offer the hats for purchase, then turn around and donate the profits to charity.

Thanks to the support of the League of Hard of Hearing in New York City, Kassie's son JQ was able to learn how to speak with his cochlear implant, after having been born with a profound hearing loss.

Therefore, the actress wanted to give back to a place that meant so much to her family.

She did so by starting the line of Happy Hats, from which she donates all the profits to the charity that helped JQ and continues to help others in his situation.

This popular line of unique crochet hats are designed and crocheted by DePaiva personally. Check them out here.
