Who knew helping others could be so violent? At last night's Charity Knock Out Event, the Kardashian family put themselves up for auction with, but it seems two of their opponents got  a little rough! Kim Kardashian sports a black eye on her official site and writes that brother Rob went to the hospital with a concussion.

“The event itself was absolutely insane!! ... we literally had three days of training to prepare for the event and thought it would be a little bit of fun to raise money for one of our favorite charities, The Dream Foundation," she writes. "We didn't expect what happened..."

Although they were told their competitors would be within five pounds of their weight, Kim says Rob's opponent was 25 lbs bigger than he is.

"Rob's a strong guy and can definitely hold his own, but he wasn't expecting to get hit after his mask had fallen off! This guy just got really down and dirty!" writes Kim.

Despite the injury to her brother, Kim decided to go on with the fight.

"We were all really angry and upset about what had happened to Rob, but I hadn't even fought yet and I didn't want to let the charity down, so I decided to get in the ring. My girl was a good sport, but she was tough! I knew I had to do it for charity…but man, my girl could throw a punch! Look at my black eye!!!"

But when all is said and done, it seems the family is happy they pitched in — however painfully! — to help others.

"At the end of the day, we did this for charity and that's what counts," explains Kim in her blog. "Rob is doing fine now and my black eye will be gone soon... I hope. You can try to bring the Kardashians down... but we're a strong family. A concussion and a black eye can't hold us down!"

Get better soon, Kardashians!
