Dear Friend,

Onlanka.com, a non-profit website, provides a wide range of free services to its users, well admired in Sri Lanka by computer professionals, as well as other interested parties including journalists. I have now planned to extend its services to more and more people in the world by giving wide publicity.

I hope you will appreciate this step, which costs some amount of money. If you are interested, you can become a sponsor to the site by making your donations (irrespective of the amount). Financial donations will be enlisted on the website, and I warmly welcome your support.
