David has actually launched his own MyConservatives campaign today - click here to check it out. As well as his campaign, there are already hundreds of local campaign groups on there, and also national campaigns for issues like scrapping ID cards and saving our rural areas.
It's not all serious though. Yesterday a young activist who has been making lots of calls was lucky enough to win a curry dinner with yours truly! There will lots more fun competitions and exclusive prizes like this in the coming weeks and months.
It's been great to see thousands of people signing up for the site in the last month or two.
If you're not one of them, well, what are you waiting for?
