Each one of our Flikshop postcards are filled with words of love, emoji's, confessions of yearning, and some pain. They tell a story, and our founder Marcus Bullock knew that we needed to figure out a way to leverage this love to help end recidivism around the globe.

When Marcus was 15 years old, he was arrested and sentenced to spend 8 years in adult maximum security prisons. By the time he served the first 2 years he became very dark and depressed, so his mom made a promise to him in a prison visiting room. Her promise was to mail him a letter or picture every day for the remaining 6 years of Marcus' sentence.

It were those letters and photos, that consistent family connection, that helped Marcus survive his time of incarceration. Distance, time, and separation all create challenges for families to maintain the emotional and relational support systems so desperately needed not just by their incarcerated loved ones, but their children, siblings, spouses, parents, and friends.

Communication during times of incarceration can be complicated and expensive. Flikshop wanted to provide a means for families to send photos and encouraging messages without breaking the bank. This led to the creation of our Flikshop Angels. Flikshop Angels are monthly subscription or one-time donors who purchase credits on behalf of families looking to stay connected to their incarcerated loved ones. This allows those families to remain strong during difficult seasons, and for their loved one to feel supported despite distance or separation.

Today, Flikshop works hard to keep every person in every cell connected to their family members and other community resources, prior to their release...just like Marcus' mom did while he was in prison.

Together, we can end recidivism!
