Moms — we need them, love them, and even have an entire day dedicated to appreciating them. But what about those lovely ladies who, though they may not be your actual moms, are definitely like a mom to you?

We’re talking about the #Sorta Mom. Maybe she’s your favorite aunt, your best friend’s mom, your stepmom, or your next-door neighbor who looked after you as a kid. Whoever your #Sorta Mom is, she totally deserves a shout-out on the day we recognize all moms.

The Esurance #Sorta Mom Sweepstakes*

At Esurance, we understand that sorta you isn’t you. But occasionally, that’s a good thing .… Take “Sorta Moms,” for instance. Just because they’re not your actual, real mom doesn’t mean they didn’t do a million mom-like things for you.

So, this Mother’s Day, we’re giving flowers to 25 lucky #Sorta Moms. Because who doesn’t love flowers, right?
