That knowledge inspired him to launch Flikshop, a simple app for your phone that allows you to send a postcard to an incarcerated friend or family member. Bullock’s first post-release enterprise, which he continues to operate, is a contracting firm that employs returning citizens. The firm employs 31 full-time staff, most of whom had been incarcerated. Because people in youth detention facilities, jails and prisons don’t have access to phones and the internet, receiving mail is important. “That's the one thing that you have to know that someone on the planet cares about you,” Bullock says.
