Flikshop keeps families connected to their friends and relatives incarcerated in over 2,000 jails, prisons, and juvenile facilities across the US. Men and women in prison are away from their families; feel left out as they have not seen their loved ones for years. The Flikshop app allows users to send photos and personal messages as real postcards directly to their loved ones; making it possible to share moments instantly, helping families stay connected by sharing bonds and creating a more substantial reentry plan for every person in every facility in the country.
