Hugh Jackman has asked fans to help him connect with a blind boy whose first day of school went viral on Instagram.
The Australian actor, 54, again posted a video to his social media of a boy named Ashton navigating the school with a white cane.
In the video, Ashton’s mother asked other children to “be kind” and involve students who “might look or act differently.”
“Hello everyone… if you know how I can get in touch with Ashton please dm me,” Hugh captioned the message.
“I wish him a great new school year. Thank you for the assistance.’

The post comes after Hugh recently shared a rare photo with his sister Zoe during a family outing in London.
Unable to wipe the smiles off their faces, the Wolverine star was seen wrapping his arm around his older sister in a sweet photo he shared with his Instagram followers.
“I’m so thankful for my sister Zoe,” he captioned the photo.
Fans were shocked to see how much the pair looked alike as they flocked to the comments to admire the Jackman duo.
“Wolverine and Wolverina,” one wrote, while another said, “She looks just like you or you look just like her.”
A third added: “Unmistakable Jackman eyes you share, plus adoring love.”

Bruh, she literally looks like him. I thought I was baked when I saw two Hugh Jackman’s,” another person wrote.
Jackman had previously revealed that the siblings grew up in different countries after their parents’ divorce.
Hugh was eight years old when his mother Grace left and returned to Britain from Australia in what he previously described as a “traumatic” experience.
The Hollywood star stayed in Australia with his late father Christopher and two older brothers Ralph and Ian, while his mother took sisters Zoe and Sonya with her.

“It was traumatic,” Hugh once told Who magazine. “I thought she’d probably come back. And then it just kept going.’
He said he didn’t realize until he was 12 or 13 that his mother wasn’t coming back, and that he saw her about “once a year” after she left.
“I remember her wearing a towel around her head and saying goodbye. (It) must have been the way she said goodbye,’ he said.
“When I went to school and came back, there was no one in the house. The next day a telegram arrived from England. Mom was there. And then that was it. My father prayed every night for my mother to come back,” he added.
