You're right, shipping in Uruguay under $ 50 USD are excluded from VAT
and other taxes, and it just needs to be shipped with PS Form 6182, also
i suggest you declare it as gift and we won't have problems with
customs. Since 2 years ago, i bought some devices (eg. a cpu in Hong
Kong and US) via online under those requirements without problems.

However, if you aren't sure send it under this way, you can donate with
money under wire tranfer to our Parabola fund account [0] or money
transfer under Western Union/More directly to coadde or me.
