I don't know what you mean by "samples" in this context.
But I'm not going to waste my time trying to explain the
therapeutic nature of Buddhism to anyone disinclined to
believe it. I'll very happily correspond with anyone who
genuinely wishes to understand.

BTW, in case you don't know, it is often very easy to
distinguish those who wish to understand, from those
who merely wish to exercise their prejudice, by the kind
of question they ask.
