Description

Over his eight-year prison sentence, Marcus Bullock was sustained by his mother's love -- and by the daily letters and photos she sent of life on the outside. Years later, as an entrepreneur, Bullock asked himself: How can I make it easier for all families to stay connected during incarceration? Enter FlikShop: an app he developed that lets families send quick postcards to loved ones in prison and help keep open a critical line of support.

My 15 yr old was sentenced to adult prison & we (his sister & me his mom) go every 2 weeks take all his calls. Now they have Tablets so we email. Your testimony gives me courage. Thank you.
