Money for Nothing

If this "GOP energy package"
is passed by congress, and I get a "hundred dollar gas tax holiday rebate check", where should I spend my new $100?

If the rebate goes to individuals making less than $125,000 or couples making less than $150,000, then I could estimate that at least 95%
of taxpayers in the US would be elligible. Which means approximately fifteen billion dollars
that tax-payers will spend as they see fit.
Since I am fortunate enough not to have to spend that money on baby formula, hospital bills, attorney fees or body armor, I would like to donate the money to a worthy cause.
Any ideas about which federally-underfunded or unrecognized programs would get the most mileage (har har) out of the money?
