Guess it went to the full mailing list anyway. Oh well. (Hi everyone)

I'll look into this a bit more and figure out which way I'll approach. Either way, I'll get you guys a Beaglebone Black!

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.
