Sure you can send a letter for 2 cents. All you need to do is.

#1. Become a legally established nonprofit entity.
#2. Get a nonprofit mailing permit (NOT automatic by any means).
#3. PAY $200 (last I looked) annual fee for a mailing permit.
#4. Send at least 200 identical letters or 50 pounds.
#5. Strict guidelines as to what the mail can contain. No billing, many other rules regarding content.
#6. Mail is sublect to acceptance, including being opened and read by USPS employees.
#7. Mail must be presorted according to zip code following strict USPS guidelines.

So yeah, nonprofit bulk mail can be sent for 2 cents. But its not just a matter of knowing how to do it. And while it IS legal, it certainly isn't simple.
