Soapbox Worldwide Watch: Six continents with Nigeria – or is it seven?

On April 6th, we were happy to announce that with the launch of Great Place to Work Greece, Non-Profit Soapbox entered its twenty-second country.

We’ve been busy with our friends at Great Place to Work since then as well, launching sites in Colombia, Sri Lanka, and now Nigeria, our first country in Africa.

With today’s launch, Soapbox now hosts sites for country locations on six continents – seven, if you’re feeling geopolitically adventurous and want to grant Chile, Argentina or Great Britain their claims to Antarctic territory since there are Soapbox sites in each.

Or perhaps Phil Penn Gwynn’s site is targeted his fellow sistern and brethren on Antarctic shores.
