using notify-send

When I use notify-send in scripts run by using '/etc/crontab' notifications are not displayed in Hardy.
In gusty doing the following
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="dbus session address of the user" sudo -u "user" notify-send "Some text"
displays notification but when I use this in Hardy I get the following error
libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-'some random text': Connection refused
Is there any other way to make scripts executed by '/etc/crontab' display notifications in Hardy?
