You can send either an IRC or a dollar or two.  US dollars are the most 
accepted currency in the world.  The issue is that mailing cash can be 
stolen while in transit.  That is more of a problem in the third world 
than most of the civilized world.  There are a few countries where using 
US currency is illegal, but that is not an issue for either Canada or 
Mexico.  IRCs are acceptable from almost anywhere (in the postal system).
