(ATCHISON, Ks.) A retailer based in Atchison, Kan. is bringing an early taste of Christmas joy.

Nell Hill's has teamed up with The GO Exchange project, a ministry founded to care for orphaned kids around the world.
Store owner, Mary Carol Garrity, visited the orphanages in Haiti and came up with a Christmas project.

Nell Hill's ships fabric from the local store to Haiti for the Haitian women to make Christmas stockings.

Each stocking is $40, and every penny made goes back to the orphanages in Haiti.

"Forty dollars goes so far in Haiti for these kids. I mean for a month it can feed them, provide a job, clothe them, educate them, I mean it's just incredible," said Nell Hill's Shop owner Mary Carol Grarrity.

The stockings can be found in Nell Hill's Briarcliff store in Kansas City or on The GO Exchange website.
