Creative ideas needed!

A friend and I have been coordinating GOTV efforts for the past few elections. Over the winter, we hosted "letters to voters" parties with a plan to do GOTV canvassing once the weather turned warmer. Covid-19 upset those plans so now we've got our volunteers writing letters at home. We need a cute phrase we can put on small envelopes for people to contribute stamps and/or money toward buying stamps for all these letters we're having written.

At the parties, we had a tip jar set up to solicit funds. But people often needed reminders about it, and we think we'll need a subtle reminder as well for those writing letters at home. We don't want anyone to feel compelled to donate; most of our volunteers are comfortably off although the pandemic may have changed that. So far, we've come up with phrases like "A few bucks here, a few stamps there, and pretty soon, we'll have enough to mail all these letters! Thanks for tossing in a few!" but I'm sure hoping someone has a better idea. Funny, catchy, punny, silly; all thoughts are welcome!

We're doing everything we can to GOTV, but need your help.
Please share cash or stamps if you can to help in our letter-writing campaign.
