Best way to get a package to Belize (Dangriga/Hopkins) inexpensively? We want to help out the village futbol (soccer) team, but all the options look to break the bank...

So, my boys put together all their old soccer equipment; decent condition cleats, balls, bags, shirts, and even trophies. The wife and I traveled to Hopkins Village last year and met the local kids and the village's soccer team. Since our kids are very into soccer, we thought sending them a package with enough balls for each player and some extras would be a great charitable thing for our sons to do, and they jumped to it.
Trouble is, the 35 lb package is going to cost upwards of $500 to ship. At that point, I might as well just send them a check. Which is impersonal and not the point, anyway. Can you help me get two packages to Belize for under/around $200? (one 35lb and one 15lb package, not oversized; 21x18x16 and 33x7x7 inches)
