Kumundo: Main Sponsor of Miss US World in China

SANYA, CHINA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2005 -- The following is a statement being issued by Lisette Diaz, Miss US World Contestant, sponsored by Kumundo.

I am so excited to be here representing our beautiful Country. When I arrived I was in awe of how beautiful China is and how warm the people are as was my reception by the people of Sanya. Unfortunately, sometimes things don't always go smoothly. A piece of my luggage with all my daywear turned up missing! Thankfully, a few days and many prayers later it turned up!

The Miss World Organization is keeping me busy. I participated in a Parade seen by approximately 1/2 million people; I've attended the Golden Rooster Awards (the Oscars for China) and have had the pleasure of enjoying wonderful fun filled events with of the most beautiful women in the world.

The selection of Miss World this year will include a segment of popular voting. I am writing to ask your support. Please log on to and vote for me online. You may vote as many times as you wish until December 10. Miss World raises funds for many worthwhile causes through its motto "Beauty With a Purpose." Each vote will cost $1.00 US dollar. I really need your support as only two fortunate young women from the "Americas" group will go on to the semi-finals (top 15). You will also have the option to vote for second contestant. If you chose to exercise this option, please consider voting for a young woman from another continent. Your vote for someone else in the Americas would nullify your vote for me.

I am working hard to represent you with dignity and style. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has helped and supported me. I especially wish to thank the members of the US military and their families for their sacrifice in our country's time of war. Their service does not go unnoticed and unappreciated. I am proud to wear the banner of the United States of America.

Last but not least, I would like to thank Mr. Roberto Masiero, CEO of Kumundo, for his support as well as The Dragon Holding Group, for their sponsorship.
